Neighborhoods - Westview

Originally named West End Park, this onetime trolley neighborhood in southwest Atlanta (and recovering victim of the mortgage fraud epidemic) is undergoing re-investment thanks to an intown revival and the soon-to-be-under construction Atlanta Beltline Westside Trail along its edge. A neighbor to Westview Cemetery — the final resting place of journalist Henry W. Grady and former Mayor William Hartsfield, among others — Westview was designed by the same landscape expert who charted Ansley Park. New homeowners are moving into once boarded-up historic bungalows dating back to the 1910s to make an increasingly diverse community. Maynard Jackson, Atlanta’s first black mayor, briefly called the neighborhood home. — Thomas Wheatley
