Alphabet Ranch-Atlanta, Georgia

This round house is a contributing property to Collier Heights Historic District. Built in 1956, this home is part of Collier Heights, one of the first neighborhoods designed and built for the up and coming Black middle class. Because of segregation, many homes in this neighborhood had substantial courtyards, basements, and rec rooms so that neighbors could host their friends and families for gatherings.

This ranch house is called alphabet ranch because from above it looks like a letter from the alphabet.
