Significance: Building GA-2309-A is the community center for Clark Howell Homes, which is considered eligible for the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Clark Howell Homes is the first public housing project to be completed by the Atlanta Housing Authority, which was created in May of 1938. Clark Howell Homes is a representative example of pre-World War II housing projects constructed by local housing authorities nationwide with the assistance of the United States Housing Authority. Clark Howell Homes was designed by the prominent Atlanta firm of Hentz, Adler, and Schutze, and the community center reflects aspects of the classical style associated with the firm. The project was named in honor of Clark Howell, Sr., one of several Atlanta businessmen who were instrumental in securing federal funds to alleviate slum housing conditions in Atlanta during the 1930s.
