More About Inman Park
Known as Atlanta’s first suburb, Inman Park has a rich history that reaches back to the 1880s. Joel Hurt, an Atlanta engineer and developer, planned Inman Park around the idea of connecting the neighborhood to the city via electric streetcar lines. It was known as one of Atlanta’s elite neighborhoods, where the most important citizens came to live.
Numerous mansions were built, and people flocked to the newest neighborhood to connect to the streetcar system. After the automobile appeared on the scene, however, upper class citizens moved north and Inman Park fell into decline. Gentrification didn’t begin until 1969, but once it began it paved the way for other in-town neighborhoods to follow.
Historic Homes & New Developments
Today, Inman Park is known for its historic homes as well as mixed use developments, most notably North Highland Steel and Inman Park Village. Factories have transformed into luxury condos, retaining the exposed ductwork, hardwood floors, and large windows. The Krog Street Market is a popular shopping and dining destination that opened in 2014, to much anticipation and acclaim. There are also numerous small shops and restaurants scattered throughout the neighborhood, only adding to Inman Park’s unique feel.
