Inman Park

Historic Inman Park is Atlanta’s first planned community and one of the country’s first garden “suburbs”, developed in the 1880s by entrepreneur Joel Hurt. Hurt also formed one of the nation’s first streetcar systems to connect Inman Park to Downtown Atlanta. The trolley route ended at the Trolley Barn, which still stands today on Edgewood Avenue, a block from the Inman Park MARTA station.

The Atlanta Constitution in 1896 grandly described Inman Park:

“High up above the city, where the purest breezes and the brightest sunshine drove away the germs of disease, and where nature had lavished her best gifts, the gentlemen who conceived the though of Inman Park found the locality above all others which they desired. It was to be a place of homes, of pretty homes, green lawns, and desirable inhabitants. And all save those who would make desirable residents have been excluded…” “It’s the prettiest, highest, healthiest and most desirable locality I ever saw. Everybody is friendly and neighborly. There are no negroes and not a single objectionable inhabitant. And as far as accessibility it ranks second to no residence portion of the city. We have three car lines and frequent schedules.

During the last weekend of April every year, Inman Park hosts a neighborhood festival featuring a street market, parades, live music and more. The Festival centerpiece is the Tour of Homes, featuring turn-of-the-century Victorian Painted Ladies and Craftsman bungalows, original contemporary designs and loft conversions. Inman Park residents also enjoy pedestrian access to the shops, restaurants and pubs of Little Five Points.
