Tom Wight of Macon will be recognized by the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation as one of nine people honored as preservation supporters at its annual Preservation Gala on April 1. Originally from Marion County, Wight’s interest in historic preservation was sparked by his discovery of Pasaquan, also known as St. EOM, an internationally acclaimed visionary art site near Buena Vista and a 2006 Georgia Trust Place in Peril. Wight’s leadership and support at the Hay House in Macon earned him the distinction of having its cupola named after him.
