Atlanta’s West End neighborhood is a nationally recognized historic district with blocks of homes featuring Craftsman Bungalow, Queen Anne, 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 in the 1830s. By the 1880s many of Atlanta’s wealthy citizens built large homes here, including well-known author Joel Chandler Harris.
In addition to historic homes and churches, West End also has a small mall, fast food and vegetarian restaurants, and access to the Westside BeltLine trail. Don’t miss events and tours at the Wren’s Nest or local beer at Monday Night Garage.
