In 2001, the Atlanta Public Schools (APS) was contemplating the future of 11 schools built between 1907 and 1932. Some had not served as schools since the 1970’s while others where scheduled to close that year.

The Caleb Prouty House is a historic, early 19th-century Greek Revival home tucked behind Cromwell Lane in downtown Vineyard Haven, eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic places and determined by the commission to have significant historical value.
The historical commission, in the midst of an effort to promote historical districts that could preserve the town's built heritage, faced another request to demolish a part of that heritage last week. The board imposed a one-year demolition delay on the 1810 Alice Collins Hanvey house at 21 Great Oak Rd. in East Orleans.
