Neighborhoods - Adair Park

Adair Park, which bills itself as “Atlanta’s best kept secret,” is punctuated by the quintessential elements of that old turn-of-the-20th-century charm: large front porches, landscaped gardens, and picturesque bungalows. Founded in 1892 by George Adair, the same developer who helped build Virginia-Highland and Morningside, the neighborhood suffered from white flight in the 1960s. In recent years, a young, urban crowd has begun to repopulate the neighborhood, enjoying affordable prices on homes and a close proximity to the West End MARTA station, Downtown, and the Atlanta Beltline. — Cleo Durham
