WEST PACES FERRY
A QUIET ROAD IN THE FOREST
Welcome to West Paces Ferry in Northside Atlanta.
Throughout the 19th century, Pace's Ferry was a prominent ferry service that traveled across the Chattahoochee River adjacent to Atlanta. It was run by a man named Hardy Pace, and provided an important transportation link to northwestern Georgia and Chattanooga before the State Road came in to place. Pace's Ferry Road was originally built as a gold country passage, and in modern day, it is still an important route through the city. West Paces Ferry Road, around which the neighborhood is situated, runs from the middle of Buckhead Village and all the way west to Paces. The road travels through some of Atlanta's oldest and wealthiest blocks in Buckhead, and features spectacular homes to people like Georgia's Governor and several other prominent figures. While most other Atlanta suburbs are quite recently developed, West Paces Ferry still has much of its original forest charm with mansions resting under a thick foliage that creates a picturesque and peaceful sight. This is a distinctly quiet residential neighborhood, hence there is no real commercial activity. However, West Paces Ferry Road travels all the way to the recently constructed Lenox Mall, where most of the shopping and dining cravings can be dampened.
