Atlanta does not have a good reputation for saving historic properties. I am fascinated to see how space evolves over time. If you’ve read my post about the Mansions of Peachtree Street, you can see how many grand homes Atlanta once had along Peachtree Street. The Atlanta of today is much like the Atlanta of yesterday, there is a significant difference in the housing for the wealthy and the poor.
This home was located between 5th and 6th Streets on Piedmont.
This home was located between Lucile and Greenwich.
The former mayor’s home used to occupy the area that now is Howell Park.
The home was at the intersection of Ponce and Peachtree directly across from the Georgian Terrace.
This home was located at West Peachtree Street and 3rd.
This home was located on Linden between W. Peachtree and Peachtree Streets.
This home was located on Boulevard between East Avenue and Ralph McGill Blvd.
This home was at the intersection of North Ave. and Boulevard.
This was at the intersection of Peachtree Place and Crescent Avenue.
This home was located on Lee Street and I-20.
The Carters and Popes were neighbors, so their home was also on Lee Street and I-20.
This home was located between Juniper and Peachtree Streets.
This home was located between Euclid Avenue and Austin Ave. I believe these lions are still in front of the apartment there.
This home would have been at Washington Street and I-20.
Ashby Street is now Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard. This home was located between North Avenue and Neal Street.
This home was located at the intersection of Ralph D Abernathy Blvd. and Gordon Place.
This home was located near the intersection of W. Peachtree Street and Pine Street.
This home was located near the intersection of Oak and Culbertson Streets.
The 1911 Sanborn does not cover this part of Atlanta, so I am uncertain where it was exactly.
