About Collier Hills

Collier Hills was founded in 1941 by the Collier family, but the family had a prominent role to play in not only the Atlanta economy and politics, but trace their roots back to the charter of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. William Tecumseh Sherman was said to have targeted the Colliers during the Atlanta Campaign due to the fact the Colliers owned the railroads and much of the heavy industry supporting the Confederacy at the time of the campaign in 1864, Collier Hills neighborhood rises from Tanyard Creek and the railroad line to Northside Drive. Most of the homes here were built shortly after World War II. Almost all show signs of recent renovation and expansion.

About Emory / Druid Hills

The rich history of Emory goes back to the The Methodist Episcopal Church who founded Emory College in 1836 in the small Georgia town of Oxford.

With strong roots to its church back in England, the founders named the town for the school’s prestigious British cousin, and named the school for the British Bishop who envisioned building a school in the South to nurture the minds and characters of its students.

The little school hung on for decades before beginning to prosper in the latter part of the 1800s. By 1914 the Methodist Church was looking to create a university in the South and Emory College was looking to expand. In stepped the founder of the Coca-Cola company, Asa Candler. Mr. Candler, wrote the now famous, “million-dollar letter” to make an offer of seed money, to the tune of one million dollars to the university, and also donated land in Atlanta for the construction of the current Atlanta campus.

Emory University received a DeKalb County charter to build at its present location in 1915. The soft drink company president’s brother was Emory alumnus and former president, Methodist Bishop Warren Candler, became Emory’s first chancellor, and to this day it is considered poor school spirit to drink any other soda products on campus. See Emory/Druid Hills Property

About Garden Hills

Phillip Campbell McDuffie was a prominent Atlanta lawyer who dreamed of an Atlanta neighborhood with a country club and pool at its center. He began developing the neighborhood in 1925. Garden Hills is an urban forested community lying at the heart of Buckhead between Peachtree and Piedmond roads, bordered on the north by Pharr Road and on the south by Lindbergh Drive.

Garden Hills captures the essence of gracious urban living with its winding streets lined with old trees, an imposing mix of early 20th century homes dating back to the 1920’s, pocket parks, landscaped traffic islands and a neighborhood pool/recreation center – all convenient to shopping, transportation, schools and churches.

The oldest streets were given historic district status in 1987. Eclectic homes characterize the neighborhood, with houses ranging from Georgian, Tudor and Spanish Revival to Craftsman in the older sections. Streets south of East Wesley, developed after the Second World War, are predominately ranches. There is also a scattering of later style homes throughout.

The Garden Hills pool is the heart of the neighborhood, a popular gathering place at Rumson Road and Pinetree Drive. The rustic clubhouse, originally built in the 1930’s and boasting a large porch and fireplace, stands almost hidden in a wooded area beside the pool. Known as the Garden Hills Rec Center, it hosts many community activities, and is available for rental for private functions.
Garden Hills is a must-see Atlanta Neighborhood!

About Grant Park

Grant Park is Atlanta’s largest Historic District and home to Zoo Atlanta, 131 acres of Green space, Oakland Cemetery, Turner Field and the Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum. You may recall a blog post from around the first of the year about the wonder that is the Oakland Cemetery. And the Atlanta Cyclorama is an impressive Civil War Museum which features a cylindrical panoramic painting representing the Battle of Atlanta.

The neighborhood was named for Lemuel Pratt Grant who was an Atlanta engineer and businessman. He was Atlanta’s quintessential railroad man as well as a major landowner and civic leader. He has been called the “Father of Atlanta.”

A wide variety of architectural structures characterize the Grant Park neighborhood. From large Victorian era mansions, to small cottages and early 20th-century bungalows, Grant Park has something for everyone. Many of the sidewalks in this neighborhood have been paved in brick, adding to its charm. Not unlike restoration and preservation movements in urban areas in other parts of the country, Grant Park began its most recent revitalization in the early 1970’s and continues today. Demolition of older homes has largely been halted and new construction seeks to conform to the character of the old neighborhood.

Grant Park prides itself on its civic and cultural diversity with people of all levels of education, age and racial backgrounds living and thriving in the same neighborhood. Whether you live in Atlanta or are here for business or pleasure, you will be sure to spend some time in this most historic of Old Atlanta neighborhoods.

About Inman Park

Inman Park is Atlanta’s first planned community. It was envisioned first by a renaissance thinker Joel Hurt, who modeled this neighborhood after other trolley neighborhoods he had seen in other parts of the country. He was influenced by, and consulted with Frederic Law Olmsted who was the landscape architect and designer of Central Park in New York City, Centennial Park, Atlanta, and the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina.

However, Mr. Hurt relied on the skills of local civil engineers and the design expertise of James Forsyth Johnson to realize the planning and construction of Inman Park. The neighborhood was platted and begun in the late 1880s.

The neighborhood is a haven of beautiful Victorian homes built on large lots, curving streets and open park areas. And although the neighborhood thrived and was home to many prominent Atlantans for the last two decades of the nineteenth century and the first decade of the twentieth century, it began a slow decline there after. Trolley travel was being supplanted by the automobile, and the architecture of the Victorian Era lost its appeal. Transitioning from a high society to a middle class neighborhood, Inman Park began to see much more modest home being built among the mansions. The large properties gradually fell into disrepair and many served as boarding houses for transient renters.

Fortunately the neighborhood began a revitalization in the 1970’s that continues today. The beauty of the old Victorians was being re-discovered. You will find some of the most beautiful homes in the city here. In 1970, the first Inman Park neighborhood association was formed, and shortly thereafter, newcomers were restoring dozens of houses in Inman Park. In 1973, the entire neighborhood was added to the National Register of Historic Places, protecting many of the finest examples of Victorian architecture from the wrecking ball.

Be sure to also check out the Inman Park Festival which occurs each April. It is a celebration of the preservation of this most beautiful Atlanta neighborhood.

About Kirkwood

This neighborhood traces its beginnings back to the early 1870s, and became an independent municipality in 1899. It boasted having its own water and school system, and even had its own fire department. It was governed by a mayor and city council. And although it was annexed into the City of Atlanta in 1922, Kirkwood has maintained it unique character to the present day. Looking back into the history of Kirkwood, one finds it referred to as “an area of beautiful suburban villas.”

Not unlike Inman Park, Kirkwood was an early streetcar suburb to Atlanta and street cars continued service to the community until the early 1950’s. Commuters had access to streetcar service three times a day.
Following the pattern of many inner-city neighborhoods around the country during the course of the twentieth century, Kirkwood has experienced many transitions through the years. Beginning as an all-white neighborhood, it gradually shifted to a predominantly black neighborhood and is now a racially diverse community. It experienced the predictable patterns of boom and bust as has been the case with many other Atlanta neighborhoods.

Beginning in the 1980’s, the neighborhood began a revitalization spearheaded by an influx of new middle and upper-middle class residents who have been buying and restoring the craftsman-style bungalows that today are perhaps the most recognizable features of an Atlanta streetcar suburb community.

Kirkwood is conveniently located just 5 miles from downtown Atlanta. It is near downtown Decatur, Little 5 Points, Candler Park, East Atlanta and Virginia-Highland. Kirkwood is also convenient to the airport; universities including Emory, Georgia State and Georgia Tech; and interstates including I-20 and the Downtown Connector (I-75/I-85).

About Lake Claire

Lake Claire is an intown community of Atlanta nestled among Candler Park and Druid Hills. It is noted for its civic-minded citizens, mature tree canopy, a varied mix of home styles, the ambiance of abundant green space and meticulously tended gardens.

This neighborhood consists of several streets and developments that became incorporated into Atlanta one-by-one around the 1910s. Today Lake Claire is a neighborhood recognized by the City of Atlanta. Lake Claire is a beautiful and family friendly community.

Interestingly, Lake Claire sits on the Eastern Continental Divide, which separates rivers flowing to the Atlantic from those flowing to the Gulf of Mexico. Lake Claire is on the Gulf side. The streets in Lake Claire were originally surveyed as a few separate developments. For the most part this community was sold as empty lots and developed individually which lends itself to the diversity of architectural offerings to prospective home owners.

The first family of Lake Claire was the Gordons who owned an estate from 1871 to 1931 on he highest point in the surrounding countryside. It overlooked the railroad and contained many acres of farmland and orchards. Unfortunately the family estate home was raised in 1942.

About Little Five Points

Little Five Points is one of Atlanta’s historic streetcar suburbs, and a vibrant and diverse shopping, dining and cultural center of the city. With access to downtown Atlanta by MARTA, this neighborhood is a short commute to and from the city.

“Little Five” is a part of the Inman Park-Moreland Historic District and was the place where the trolley lines met, establishing this neighborhood as the earliest regional shopping hub for the entire area.

As has been the case with inner-city neighborhoods all over the country, the area experienced a period of rapid growth until the “white flight” of the 1960s and a proposed freeway through the heart of the area threatened the breakup of the neighborhood. But beginning in the mid 1970s LFP began a gradual comeback as Atlanta’s alternative neighborhood. First attracting only the most strident of the avant garde, the neighborhood gradually transitioned to broaden its appeal, but not to the detriment of it being a throwback to the counterculture of the 1960s. The neighborhood’s shops and restaurants still sport an edginess and the art of the district is still offbeat, but the area has again become a popular destination for both residents and visitors alike.

The neighborhood is a draw for its independent bookstores and vintage used clothing stores. It is also the place to go if you are like me and seeking recorded music from the past; especially the vinyl variety. Live Indie music from around the country is a staple of this neighborhood. Local bands are also accessible here. The neighborhood is home to some quality small theatres which offer up everything from more mainstream productions to the alternative and cutting edge. Dining in LFP offers everything from traditional steakhouse fare and burger joints to health food co-ops.

Little Five Points is certainly not be for everyone but is a great way to spend an afternoon people watching. The New York Times called the neighborhood “Greenwich Village with peach trees.” It has been described as “a compact, vibrant neighborhood with great restaurants and a good nightlife scene if you want to avoid loud, big-city dance clubs.”

This is definitely a place not to miss when exploring Atlanta. And the Little Five Points Halloween Festival and Parade is the highlight of the year.

About Loring Heights

Loring Heights, The Loring Heights neighborhood derives its name form Brigadier General William Wing Loring of the Provisional Army of the Confederate States. It is a small neighborhood in Midtown Atlanta, developed right after WW II. Most of the original residents were employees of the Atlantic Steel plant which has closed, but has been creatively repurposed into the Atlantic Station Complex. It is located about a half mile west of Peachtree Street and convenient to all major highways, Atlantic Station and Downtown Atlanta, which makes it a very attractive area for young home buyers.

The neighborhood is made up of just over 300 mostly modest, one-story brick cottages, on quarter acre lots. A real draw of this neighborhood are its mature trees, rolling topography and a park with a duck pond. This formerly working class neighborhood has experienced a transformation to a diverse mix of singles, couples and thriving families. Home buyers are drawn to the well cared-for affordable housing, the green space, and the easy access to the Big Peach.

Loring Heights has a reputation for being welcoming to all. Residents pride themselves as being friendly and outgoing.

As is the case with all of the Atlanta neighborhoods, Loring Heights is steeped in the history of the Atlanta region. It has experienced the ebb and flow of its evolution from a country community to a part of a burgeoning metropolis. It has done so with style and grace.

About Lynwood Park

Lynwood Park is located in the heart of Brookhaven and is one of Atlanta’s oldest neighborhoods being developed in the early 1930’s. The name of this community was the combination of the man who sold the first houses to its resident,- Lynn, and the woods which surrounded the area. It is the site of Atlanta’s oldest Black enclave and is feeling the pressure of gentrification. According to Google, it is the shift in an urban community toward wealthier residents and/or businesses and increasing property values.

Now to many, reading the definition of gentrification sounds like a good thing. That is not the case with third and fourth generation residents of this small piece of Atlanta. With rising property values comes rising property taxes, forcing many residents out of homes that have been in the family for decades. Couple that with the lack of zoning regulation, limiting the type, size, and scope of the new construction, and you have a recipe for the loss of the charm that has been Lynwood Park for generations. This situation is not unique to Lynwood Park and through the end of the 1990s and early years of the the 21st century, efforts have been made by area residents to fend off their rising property taxes and preserve the traditional nature of Lynwood Park.

This historic neighborhood is located off of Windsor Parkway and has an abundance of new construction and craftsman style homes available.

About Marietta

Marietta is a city located in central Cobb County, and is its county seat. It is one of metro Atlanta’s largest suburbs with a population of 57,579 residents. It is located outside of I-285 in-between I-75 and GA 400.

This city within the city of Atlanta is a well organized, citizen centered community, receiving many accolades during the past several yeas. The city has been identified as being an All American City in 2006. It has the distinction of being named one of the top 25 places in the country to retire by CNNMoney.com in 2011. Marietta has a rich and colorful history dating back thousands of years in the Cherokee story.

The modern era of Marietta begins with a small settlement near the what would become the town of Kennesaw in 1824. As was the case in virtually every other place in the New World, counties were established by the state in what was originally Indian land. Cobb County was one, named for the prominent local citizen, Thomas Willis Cobb, who was a member of Congress in both the House and Senate and was also appointed to the Supreme Court.

It was reported by the by the Georgia Gazatteer in 1837, Marietta was named for Cobb’s wife. The town was recognized by the Georgia legislature in late 1834. If one travels the back roads of the U.S., it is hard to deny the predominant pattern of small town design with a square in the center, (often containing a courthouse) flanked on all sides by the homes and businesses of the first residents.

Marietta is no exception. In the case of this town, it became the site of the Western and Atlantic railroad hub and business began to boom. The town was decimated by fire several time during the 1850s. And being fully recovered at the moment of the attack on Fort Sumter, Marietta would experience the devastation brought by General William Tecumseh Sherman’s “March to the Sea.” See Marietta Properties

About Virginia Highlands

About Dunwoody

Dunwoody is in northern DeKalb County, just outside of I-285 and very centrally located near GA 400. The community was named for Major Charles Dunwody who was a major in the Confederate Army. The difference in spelling of the name of the major and the name of the town was rumored to have been due to a mispelling of his name on a bank note. Adding the extra “O” resulted in the spelling of the town as it is known today. (These “back stories” are the reason I love history)

This newly incorporated city is one of the most affluent and prestigious areas within Greater Atlanta. Dunwoody contains many elegant homes, highly-ranked schools, and abundant shopping and entertainment opportunities. The historical area of Dunwoody officially became a city at midnight on December 1, 2008 following a fairly contentious, community led movement to incorporate the City.

Although not formally recognized as a City prior to 2008, the residents in this area have always identified themselves as living in “Dunwoody”, with a unique history separate from other areas and cities in DeKalb County. The Cherokee Indian tribe of the Creek Confederation originally inhabited what is now the city.

The Chattahoochee River was the water artery that made the area an ideal place to live and was the largest and busiest early trading center in the vicinity. The indigenous peoples call this area the “standing peach tree” or “pitch tree”. By 1820, Cherokee farms dotted the area around the Chattahoochee. It was at this time that white settlers began to arrive, creating homesteads and expanding the population. See Dunwoody Property

About Reynoldstown and Edgewood

Reynoldstown and Edgewood are located about 1 mile east of downtown, and were settled by freed slaves looking for work in the railroad, sawmill and timber industries after the Civil War.
