The Randolph-Lucas House at the intersection of Peachtree Road and Lindbergh Drive looks tiny now compared to the high-rise condos that have sprouted up around it, but the stately mansion has been there since 1924.
However, it might soon disappear. The 2500 Peachtree Condominium Association has put in a demolition application for the Randolph-Lucas House. The mansion's designation as a historic building means the Atlanta Urban Design Commission has to review the application at two upcoming public meetings first.
All of this raises some larger questions about historic preservation. Is Atlanta - and Buckhead - still a place where we're quick to bulldoze the old to make way for the new? Should the community do more to preserve historic buildings? What should happen to the Randolph-Lucas House?
