Collier Heights

Collier Heights development began slowly in the 1910s, with homes for white Atlantans. As WWII came to a close and housing shortages hit the city, African Americans began to purchase, develop and finance subdivisions on the west side. This neighborhood is a treasure trove of mid-century modern homes, but the stories of who lived in these homes is even better.
