The facade of the mule barn was designed by Edward Vason Jones who was a famous Southern architect who designed rooms in the White House that still remain as well as the State Department. The facade of the barn was hit by a tornado. After the tornado Edward Vason Jones designed a new facade for the barn with a classical influence as a gift to the Holman family, who owned the barn at the time. Please sign the petition in support of keeping the Holman Mule Barn in Downtown Albany, Georgia.

      Another parking lot in downtown Albany is not going to solve Albany's problems. At least the mule barn adds some character to what's left of downtown Albany.

      The Holman Mule Barn has been part of the DTown Albany for many generations. My petition is to allow it to stand but to make it useful.

      I grew up in Albany, got married there, had both my children there. Enough has been destroyed, including the city government and the school system. Let's start saving what we can. This is a good start, but it's really the people (especially children) that I worry about. The new mayor seems to be doing good things...may it continue.

      I am signing because I was born and raised in Albany, and I would like to see what's left of its history preserved.

      Albany has done more than enough to destroy the beauty it used to possess. There are relatively few old buildings/houses left. Albany needs to look around at some other southern cities that have kept their charm by restoring their old buildings. Our history needs to be remembered and protected. There's very little left in Albany that's pretty, especially downtown.
