Kirkwood is one of Intown Atlanta’s most up and coming neighborhoods, whose residential development traces back to the 1870’s. Just five miles from downtown, this community is considered a small town in a big city, loving referred to as the “The Mayberry in the City” by long-time residents. Parks for family events, walking trails, and biking. Festivals for community, culture, entertainment. Historic homes for front porches, character and soulful living. Some of the oldest homes in Kirkwood were built in the Victorian Folk, Arts and Crafts, and Queen Anne styles. Later, in the early 1900’s, styles change to more of the American Foursquare bungalows that are common in several Intown Atlanta “streetcar suburb” neighborhoods.
