LIVING IN INMAN PARK

Inman Park is Atlanta’s first planned residential suburb and also Atlanta’s first electric trolley neighborhood. Created at the cusp of the twentieth century, this ideal Victorian neighborhood — curved streets, generous residential lots and verdant parks — was built upon the wrecked land of Atlanta’s Civil War battlefield, two miles east of Downtown Atlanta.

Inman Park was the brainchild of a renaissance thinker named Joel Hurt (1850-1926), who modeled the neighborhood after other trolley neighborhoods he had seen throughout the United States. In particular, Hurt, who now has Hurt Street named after him, had been impressed with the park-like neighborhoods created by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, and along with landscape architect James Forsyth Johnson, plotted Inman Park in the late 1880s.

THINGS TO DO IN INMAN PARK

Inman Park is an intown neighborhood on the east side of Atlantak, Georgia, and its first planned suburb. It was named for Samuel M. Inman.

INMAN PARK and nearby were initially developed due to the construction of major railroad lines through the area allowing access to cotton, cattle and later oil in INMAN PARK. The construction of the Interstate Highway System reinforced INMAN PARK`s prominence as a transportation hub, with four major interstate highways converging in the city and a fifth interstate loop around it. INMAN PARK then developed as a strong industrial and financial center and a major inland port, due to the convergence of major railroad lines, interstate highways and the construction of INMAN PARK International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in the world.
