Member Spotlight

Tad Brown addressing the Watson-Brown Foundation's Junior Board.

Few have a passion to preserve that rivals that of Tad Brown, President of the Watson-Brown Foundation. A long-time Trust supporter and Board Member, Mr. Brown comes from a line of preservationists, whose family history is tied to the history of Georgia. Recently, Mr. Brown has generously donated use of the historic Goodrum House for the Trust's 26th Annual Preservation Gala.

When he is not working with the Watson-Brown Foundation to insure the survival of some of Georgia's most important historic properties, Mr. Brown serves as a Trustee of the Mercer University Press and a Board Member of the Georgia Humanities Council. He is a dedicated preservationist and community servant. Following his graduation with a degree in history from Florida State University, Mr. Brown dedicated his professional life to defending and meticulously restoring properties including Hickory Hill in Thomson, Georgia and the T.R.R. Cobb House in Athens. He and his wife, Mary Kay, live in Evans with their two children.

All of us at the Trust take inspiration from Tad Brown's efforts to save and restore historic places. We are indebted to him for his generosity, and we cannot begin to thank him for his many efforts on our behalf.

If you are interested in attending the Trust's Preservation Gala, tickets are still available. Please contact Lindsay Cronk at 404-885-7805 to reserve your ticket today. This is a singular opportunity to explore the Goodrum House as it is in the process of being restored. Join the Trust for our Fine Feathered Fete.
