Atlanta’s West End neighborhood is a nationally recognized historic district, with blocks of homes featuring Craftsman Bungalow, Queen Anne, Stick style, Folk Victorian, Colonial Revival, American Foursquare and Neoclassical Revival styles next to the West End MARTA station.

The area originally developed around the White Hall Inn at a bustling crossroads in the 1830s, less than a block from today’s MARTA station on the red/gold line. The neighborhood boomed and by the 1880s many of Atlanta’s wealthy citizens built large homes here and an active commercial district existed on Gordon Street.

In addition to historic homes and churches, West End also has a small mall, a number of fast food and vegetarian restaurants, modern apartment buildings, a Kroger grocery store and its own MARTA station on Lee Street. The neighborhood is also in close proximity to downtown Atlanta, Castleberry Hill, Westview and the West End BeltLine trail, which is spurring more development in the area.
