Piedmont Heights

Piedmont Heights is Atlanta’s oldest community, settled in 1822 by Benjamin Plaster.   This was two years before Archibald Holland bought a tract where Terminus, now Atlanta, was founded in 1837.  Plaster built a bridge over Peachtree Creek and the trail to it later became Piedmont Road.

Gradually a little township called Easton grew up on Clear Creek where Ansley Mall is located today.

In 1864 General Sherman swept through Georgia and his troops, camped on the edge of Easton, did considerable damage to the area.  After the war, the little schoolhouse was rebuilt and soon shared with the Union Sunday School.  Civil War veteran Captain James M. Liddell bought 40 acres near the school and built his two-story frame home, which some say is Atanta’s second oldest, at 464 Montgomery Ferry Road.

Piedmont Height homes mostly date to the 1940s and 1950 and you will find a lot of bungalows. Tucked away within Piedmont Heights is Gotham Park, which is owned by the neighborhood residents (and not by the City of Atlanta), and it is run and maintained through the Gotham Park Committee of the Piedmont Heights Civic Association. Gotham Park was created in 1957 as a buffer between the neighborhood and some commercial development along Monroe Drive.

Today Piedmont Heights honors the rich heritage of its roots in old Easton and takes great pride in characterizing itself, quite aptly, as a “small town in the big city.”


Piedmont Heights borders Sherwood Forest and Ansley Park to the west, Brookwood Hills to the north, Morningside / Lenox Park to the east and Piedmont Park and Midtown Atlanta to the south.  It is situated with the Atlanta Beltline along the western border, I-85 to the north and Piedmont Avenue along the eastern border. The neighborhood is located in the city of Atlanta within Fulton county and the zip code 30324.

Atlanta Public Schools operates the public schools serving the neighborhood. The schools include Morningside Elementary, Inman Middle School and Grady High School.
