The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta

The CFGA supplied the grant funds for The RLHA Master Plan.  In addition, the CFGA provided regular staff representation and substantial grant funding of RLHA Master Plan implementation projects through the Mableton Improvement Coalition nonprofit.

Georgia Battlefields Association

Georgia Battlefields has been instrumental in preserving Civil War sites within the RLHA and is a resource of historical information used for interpretive markers.

Georgia Power

The Georgia Power Plant McDonough is on the Chattahoochee riverbank at S. Cobb Drive influencing a sizeable central area of the RLHA. Along with representation, Georgia Power contributed documentation reproduction services for RLHA Master Plan materials.

Green Street Properties, Marthasville Development, and Jamestown Properties

This partnership acquired 88 acres including about 1/3 mile of Chattahoochee Riverfront within the RLHA, which will transform industrial waterfront area into a mixed use village named Riverview Landing, focused on sustainable living. The RLHA branding adds distinction to the area and its development.

Mableton Improvement Coalition, Inc.

The MIC secured grant funding for the RLHA Master Plan and is actively implementing its goals. Signup for the free newsletter, become a member, and learn more about RLHA activities in Mableton by attending the next monthly Chattahoochee River Line meeting.

PATH Foundation

PATH is the impetus for trail building in the Greater Atlanta area and is an advocate for extending the Silver Comet Trail through the RLHA to the Chattahoochee River connecting with the Atlanta Trail system leading to the popular Beltline project.  The RLHA is a conduit to the PATH Foundation.

Smyrna Historical and Genealogical Society

The SHGS operates the Smyrna Museum which provides support for RLHA activities and serves as an archive for RLHA materials.

Trust for Public Land

Preserving land for public use along the Chattahoochee River and extending the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area south of Peachtree Creek is among TPL's objectives. There is almost 7 miles of Chattahoochee Riverfront bordering the RLHA.

The Chattahoochee Riverkeeper

With the RLHA bordering the Chattahoochee River, mutual interests abound. The RLHA participates in CR's Neighborhood Water Watch program with regular water samples from Nickajack Creek.  Contact the RLHA if you would like to help monitor Nickajack Creek.

Vinings Community Conservation Alliance

The VCCA led the way in defining the geographic boundaries to establish Historic Vinings Village as a character area in Cobb County.  Vinings has significant RLHA hidden resources that contribute to the integrity of The RLHA.  The VCCA and RLHA have shared goals in historic and greenspace preservation.


Whitefield Academy

Whitefield is a Christian preparatory school located in the heart of the RLHA on Nickajack Creek. Their facility hosted the RLHA Master Plan meetings.
