Inman Park is nestled into a little over a quarter of a square mile and flanked by Old Fourth Ward, Candler Park, Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown. Rich in history, it was part of the battlefield in the Battle of Atlanta in 1864. Inman Park as a residential area, was planned in the 1880s by a developer who hoped to create a connection to the city by electric streetcar lines. Within a few decades, the invention of the automobile allowed more affluent residents to live in suburbs further north and Inman Park became less trendy – with its Victorian-era architecture seeming outdated. Likewise and similarly to other Atlanta neighborhoods, Inman Park was neglected during this migration, but it was Atlanta’s first intown neighborhood to gentrify beginning in the late 1960s. Now, after many decades of dedicated revitalization, Inman Park is a highly sought-after neighborhood.
Whether you look to live in this hotspot of history, architecture, and activity or just choose to visit, you won’t be short on good times in Inman Park.
