Kirkwood

Kirkwood offers perfect in-town living with friendly and diverse neighbors, strong sense of community, beautiful historic homes, and central location. With roots dating to the 1870s, Kirkwood boasts a number of distinctive architectural styles, from Greek revival to gingerbread Victorian to the ever-popular craftsman bungalow of the 1920s and 1930s.

While no one would consider Kirkwood a suburb of Atlanta today, an early tour book described it as an “area of beautiful suburban villas.” Kirkwood was an early streetcar suburb to Atlanta. By 1910 streetcars provided express service to and from Atlanta three times daily, and street cars continued service along some streets including Boulevard Dr (presently Hosea L Williams Dr) until the early 1950’s.

Kirkwood was incorporated as an independent municipality in 1899. In 1922, Kirkwood residents voted for annexation into the city of Atlanta. After a period of decline, beginning in the 1980s, the neighborhood began to witness another influx of new residents interested in renovating the neighborhood’s stock of historic housing. While rich in history, Kirkwood’s rise, then its fall into decline, and its recent arrival again has made it a neighborhood attractive to middle and upper-middle income homeowners.

Popular Kirkwood events include the Spring Fling and Tour of Homes, Wine Stroll and Battle Atlanta.
