Edgewood is located 3 miles east of Downtown, bound on the north by Dekalb Avenue, on the south by Memorial Drive, and on the east by Montgomery Street, Woodbine Avenue, and Rogers Street. Not many know, but Edgewood was it’s own city prior to be annexed in 1909. Edgewood was developed heavily during Atlanta’s reconstructive boom (1875-1910), built primarily for blue collar folks commuting on the rail line/streetcar to work downtown.
Most homes in Edgewood today are craftsman bungalows, unlike the neighboring Candler Park and Kirkwood, but not for long as new modern construction homes, townhomes and condos become built. There continues to be lots of development activity in recent years, currently there is an old trolley rail in the process of being built to connect with the BeltLine.
