Inman Park was Atlanta’s first planned residential suburb developed nearly 100 years ago.  Recent development efforts have been careful to preserve the unique history, while bringing in new life with hip lofts, an emerging culinary scene, and lots of open green spaces.  Located just five minutes east of Downtown Atlanta, Inman Park borders the Old Fourth Ward and Little Five Points, and offers one of the most pedestrian friendly lifestyle that Atlanta has to offer, along with a close knit network of neighbors.  Learn more about what makes Inman Park so special, while browsing all homes currently for sale in the neighborhood.

Inman Park (proper) was planned in the late 1880s by Joel Hurt, a civil engineer and real-estate developer who intended to create a rural oasis connected to the city by the first of Atlanta’s electric streetcar lines, along Edgewood Avenue. The East Atlanta Land Company acquired and developed more than 130 acres east of the city and Hurt named the new suburb for his friend and business associate, Samuel M. Inman. Joseph Forsyth Johnson was hired as landscape designer for Inman Park who included curvilinear street designs and liberal usage of open spaces in his planning.

The Atlanta Constitution in 1896 grandly described Inman Park:

“High up above the city, where the purest breezes and the brightest sunshine drove away the germs of disease, and where nature had lavished her best gifts, the gentlemen who conceived the thought of Inman Park found the locality above all others which they desired. It was to be a place of homes, of pretty homes, green lawns, and desirable inhabitants. And all save those who would make desirable residents have been excluded. . . . It’s the prettiest, highest, healthiest and most desirable locality I ever saw. Everybody is friendly and neighborly. . . . And as far as accessibility it ranks second to no residence portion of the city. We have three car lines and frequent schedules.”

Like new developments throughout the United States at the time, but in stark contrast to the attitudes prevalent in the neighborhood today, Inman Park was conceived of and promoted as a segregated community.

Moreland Park was by contrast developed as a more traditional, incremental building of sub-divisions as opposed to the grand plan.
