Westview

Westview is a historic intown neighborhood located southwest  of Downtown Atlanta. Westview homes are made up of a mixture of architectural styles including Arts & Crafts bungalows, Four-Squares, Tudors, Minimal Traditional houses, and Ranch style houses.

Westview is a prime example of an Atlanta streetcar neighborhood. In 1884 land was purchased to create the new Westview Cemetery after Oakland Cemetery had sold all of its plots. This, in turn, encouraged the West End and Atlanta Street Car Company to start grading in 1886 to extend its street car line 2 (the Ponce de Leon – Westview line) to the Westview Cemetery.

In 1888 the Ontario Land Company purchased several tracts of land for their newly planned suburban neighborhood named Westwood Park. Nevertheless, Westwood Park never materialized beyond land preparation. In 1910, the area was developed into a “residence park” known as West End Park.

West End Park flourished for many years with an active neighborhood commercial district along Ralph David Abernathy Blvd. Many longtime and former residents still recall fond memories of the grocery store, butcher store, sundry, Clyatt’s drug store with a soda fountain, and the Teddy Bear Grill. While the neighborhood is still recovering from its abusive years there is light at the end of the tunnel. Today many Westview neighbors are working hard to rebuild what was once a thriving intown community. Today, West End Park is simply known as Westview, presumably due to its proximity to the adjacent Westview Cemetery.

The Atlanta BeltLine passes through the eastern edge of the Westview neighborhood as part of the BeltLine’s “Model Mile”.
