Established in 1912, Inman Park is Atlanta’s first planned garden suburb with carefully planned tree-lined streets, lush parks and other public spaces. Inman Park contains Atlanta’s best collection of residential architecture from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Neighborhood styles include Victorian, Queen Anne, high-style Italianate and Romanesque mansion as well as smaller bungalows from the early 20th Century, tiny mill town shotguns, and four squares.
After decades of restoration and renewal, Inman Park is now regarded as a highly desirable Intown neighborhood with a mixture of rental and owner-occupied houses and condominiums. Former industrial areas have been converted into mixed-use developments, and the area has a convenient MARTA station. Nearby is Little 5 Points, a trendy area of funky restaurants and eclectic second-hand shops that is popular among neohippies and Gen-Xers.
Located approximately three miles northeast of Peachtree Street in Downtown Atlanta, Inman Park also is home to one of Atlanta’s most-anticipated annual festivals. The Inman Park Festival showcases the neighborhood’s personality with costumed performers mingling with local city council members. That community spirit is reflected year round in the many local restaurants, coffee houses and bars.
