Historic West End
West End has seen many changes since originally being established as White Hall in 1835 and eventually becoming one of Atlanta’s first suburbs. Due to the railways to Downtown Atlanta the neighborhood grew rapidly and became home to many prominent Atlantans. Throughout the years it emerged as a booming business district and many of the stunning original craftsman bungalows, Queen Anne and Folk Victorian homes were built that we see today.
Like many city neighborhoods in Atlanta and the nation, the urban sprawl boom in the mid 1950s led to decline, soonafter in the 1960s white flight swept the country and the demographic of the neighborhood turned to mostly black, with white families moving to the northern suburbs. The neighborhood continued to prosper as an African American culture hub.
Unfortunately throughout the 90s and early 2000s, West End was at the center of the mortgage fraud crisis which ended up causing the recession. Since the BeltLine has came through the neighborhood, it’s had a rebirth and is striving. The glorious homes and trees still stand today, the community is vibrant and very involved, if you’re looking for somewhere you can bike/walk to anywhere with a ton of charm, West End could be the spot for you.
