Cobb County Historic Preservation Commission

The first major step taken by Cobb County toward protecting its past was the passage of a countywide historic preservation ordinance in 1984. This ordinance was the first of its kind in Georgia. The ordinance established the Cobb County Historic Preservation Commission, known as CCHPC. Read the Cobb County Historic Preservation Ordinance.

The preservation commission is made up of five county residents who are appointed by the Board of Commissioners. Members of the preservation commission have keen interest and knowledge that qualify them to recommend specific buildings, districts, sites, structures or works of art to receive historical designation. They make recommendations to the Board of Commissioners.

M. Christopher Baldwin – Appointed by Chairman Mike Boyce (At-Large)

Born in Atlanta, Georgia while my father was at Georgia Tech. He became an Architect in the early 60’s. So, our Family got our roots under a Father who as an Architect taught us many things about Design & Construction. He hired me to work when I was 15 and I got to design my first home a short time later. I also went to Georgia Tech and studied there for my Bachelor’s & Master’s Degree in Architecture. And of course, Architectural History is required as a major part of our studies in Architecture. Also during College, my wife & I went to Europe for a Study Abroad which gave us so many insights into the Architectural History of our world. That was a wonderful experience.
