About Us

Company History

The Historic Westside newspaper was an initiative that arose from the community’s desire to produce an expanded version of West End and NPU-L Historic Westside newsletters to ensure the connectivity of Atlanta Historic Westside communities and create a space for uncensored community voices. In 2016, the community vision received support and funding from the  City of Atlanta’s Living Cities City Accelerator grant that was awarded to increase civic engagement in the Westside neighborhoods to realize their collective vision.

Our Goals

To produce an independent self-sustaining community newspaper that preserves and promotes the history and legacy of Atlanta Historic Westside Communities.
