PEOPLESTOWN
A NEIGHBORHOOD ON THE RISE
Welcome to Peoplestown, Atlanta.
Peoplestown is a primarily residential neighborhood situated south of Turner Field and central Atlanta. The neighborhood emerged in 1885, when Atlanta Electric Railway built a line along Capitol Avenue. House construction started simultaneously, and comprised what was the beginning of todays Peoplestown. The area is named after the Peoples family, who owned part of the land. One of Atlanta's most voguish residential streets at the time was Washington Street.The street ran from the state capitol through the Washington-Rawson district, and ended in what is today the neighborhood of Peoplestown. The community was originally home to a mix of cultures, but much of the Caucasian population moved out in the 1930's, when automobiles became available to many affluent residents. The cars allowed them to move to more desirable areas on Atlanta's north side, while still commuting to downtown jobs. In the 1960s. the Downtown Connector was built, which caused the destruction of several houses in the western part of Peoplestown. In the 1980s, even more residences were destroyed as the Connector was expanded. However, revitalization of the area has been ongoing since the 1990s thanks to the Peoplestown Revitalization Corporation, which also features a neighborhood watch program and other safety measures. A redevelopment plan was designed in 1996, and much new development has occurred since. Today the area features a blend of modern construction and historic residences like Queen Anne, Folk Victorian and Craftsman bungalows. In addition to pedestrian-friendly streets, and a pretty landscape with plenty of trees, residents here have access to several parks including the D.H. Stanton Park and Four Corners Park. With its beautiful surroundings and stunning views of downtown Atlanta, this neighborhood won't be a secret for much longer!
