Atlanta’s first planned suburb, Inman Park is characterized by its curved, tree-lined streets filled with restored circa 1800s Victorian houses and open greenspaces. The neighborhood fell into decline in the 1950s, but when the city made plans to run a freeway through it in the 1970s, residents fought back. Today, the neighborhood brims with restored homes, new lofts and condos, as well as popular restaurants and trendy boutiques. On the National Registry of Historic Places, Inman Park was home to the city’s first streetcar line, which ran from Edgewood Avenue to the Trolley Barn, which is still located at 963 Edgewood Avenue.
