Kirkwood

Kirkwood is a national historic designated neighborhood on the east side of Atlanta. Historic Kirkwood hosts a large stock of Victorian and Craftsman style homes along with new homes in traditional styles.

Kirkwood is one of Atlanta’s well known “close-in” neighborhoods- an extremely tight-knit community, and is home to the Kirkwood Neighbors Association, an active community group focused on the betterment of the area. Located about 4 miles east of the downtown and steeped in a rich history of the City of Atlanta it’s no wonder that it led the pack of transitioning City of Atlanta neighborhoods near the turn of the century. Before the Civil War, much of property in the area was owned by two families- the Kirkpatrick family and the Dunwoody family. The name Kirkwood comes from the blending of the two family names and development began in the 1870’s. Kirkwood holds a very interesting designation- that of the location of the “first shots fired” in the Historic “Battle of Atlanta”. There are many Markers in the Kirkwood area that tell the stories and locations of Civil War Battles. The area began to flourish in the in the early 1900’s as Kirkwood became a streetcar suburb and provided daily service to and from Atlanta. The neighborhood is best known for its beautiful Victorian and Craftsman style homes.

Like most of Atlanta’s in-town communities it experienced steep decline up until the early 1990’s when investors and urban pioneers starting buying and renovating the historic homes in the area. The last decade brought significant change to the community as renovations and restorations skyrocketed. The redevelopment of the downtown Kirkwood area along Hosea Williams (formally Boulevard), at Oakview, has had a tremendous increase to the areas appeal. There are coffee houses, unique dining options, and even a neighborhood “feed and seed” now open in the village.

Neighborhood Tidbits

Community festivals and events like the Kirkwood Spring Fling and the Kirkwood Wine Stroll continue to grow in popularity and only add to Kirkwood’s modern city living appeal.
