Virginia-Highland

In the early 1890s, the Fulton County Street Railroad began it’s Nine Mile Circle route. Atlantans could hop on downtown then loop up through the beautiful, breezy farmland in the Northeast part of the city. Not soon after, well-to-do families, like the Adairs, began to build summer homes here. In 1904, the first neighborhood was platted and 13 more would be platted by 1935. Collectively, these make up Virginia-Highland.

This week, I'm talking about early settlers, iconic schools, churches and houses and much more.
