History of Midtown, GA

Midtown wasn’t always the bustling Atlanta neighborhood that we all know today. Back in the late 1800s, Midtown was a popular neighborhood known for its grand and stately homes. After World War II, many of its residents decided to leave the area to for Atlanta’s burgeoning suburbs.

As a result, Midtown went into decline. In the 1970s, the city slowly started to rebuild. With the help the Midtown Alliance, a non-profit organization, Midtown became a mixed-use community designed with a “new urbanist” mindset – a city or community with walkable blocks, homes and stores in close proximity, and accessible public spaces.
