This is a list of African American Historic Places in Georgia. This was originally based on a book by the National Park Service, The Preservation Press, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers,[1] which may primarily have addressed sites that were listed, or were eligible for listing, on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). Historic sites might meet local or state criteria for listing in a historic register with or without meeting NRHP listing criteria.

A volunteer organization, the Georgia African American Historic Preservation Network (GAAHPN), has been active in preserving African American historic resources since 1989.[2]

The state of Georgia's Historic Preservation Division has staff dedicated in this area since 2000. The program assists in preservation and, with GAAHPN, publishes Reflections, a periodical featuring African American historic sites and stories.[2] HPD's program was the first established within any state historic preservation office.[2]
