Grant Park, GA
Named for L.P. Grant in 1873, this community was a home for the upper and middle class throughout the 1800s. With craftsman-style architecture and little space for the newly popular automobiles of the 1900s, the style of the neighborhood resisted change as the wealthier departed for Buckhead and Morningside neighborhoods. The area gets almost 2 million visitors a year and popularity of the area grew towards the turn of the new century. Historical protections and zoning restriction were put in place to preserve the remaining homes and green space that draws people to this community today.
The Oakland Cemetery is the final home to many famous locals, like Maynard Jackson and Margaret Mitchell. Not only is it a beautiful setting but you can make a putt for birdie on Bobby Jones’s grave. With events like Malts and Vaults, which is a beer tasting and vault tour, there is always something new to see and do.
