INMAN PARK
THE PLANNED SUBURB
Welcome to Inman Park, Atlanta.
This neighborhood lies on the east side of the Atlanta, and was the first planned suburb in the city. It was named after Samuel Martin Inman, a prominent cotton merchant and businessman who lived in the city between 1843 and 1915. Inman Park encompasses four distinct areas: Inman Park Historic District, Moreland Park Historic District, Copenhill Park. The neighborhood also includes a few mixed-use development areas on the west side, including Inman Park Village. Inman Park proper was originally planned to create a rural oasis, which would be connected to the city by the new streetcars. The designer, Joseph Forsyth Johnson, designed the streets in curvilinear fashion and employed liberal usage of open spaces. The neighborhood was initially home mainly to the upper class, but during the automobile-era many wealthy citizens moved to suburbs further from downtown. People instead chose to live in neighborhoods like Morningside and Buckhead, hence Inman Park became less fashionable. Ironically, the now highly coveted Victorian architecture seemed outdated at the time and people desired more modern architecture. As a measure, many prolific buildings were converted to apartment buildings to attract new, less upscale residents. The once flashy area became poor and filled with the blue-collar workers and elderly couples who weren't able to afford anything else. However, after years and years of revival projects, Inman Park is once again a highly desirable neighborhood, featuring a multitude of several million-dollar mansions. Industrial areas have been redeveloped in favor of mixed-use complexes, and the former Mead Paper Plant site is now home to the green and modern Inman Park Village. What was previously the Atlanta Stone Works has turned into a thriving office and restaurant space, and the area is thoroughly transformed as a whole.
