Buckhead is the name of a large northern section of Atlanta. On the map above the area above Buckhead inside the perimeter is the new city of Sandy Springs which also extends outside the perimeter. This area is included in my zip code searches on this page.Buckhead is home to the Governors Mansion, top notch restaurants, elegant shopping and high end real estate. The name “Buckhead” came from a large stuffed buck’s head on the wall of a Tavern which was owned by Henry Irby and which opened in 1837. It was located at the intersection of Roswell Road and West Paces Ferry Road near a Creek Indian Trail. (now known as Peachtree Road) The popular establishment was able to survive the Civil War, and Sherman’s march to the sea.Formerly known as Irbyville, the name “Buckhead” was adopted as the name of the community. Buckhead and Atlanta were founded approximately at the same time. Buckhead was annexed into the city in 1952. It was the next town north of Atlanta.It now has about 100,000 residents and includes all of Atlanta north of Midtown. Buckhead is the area between the Chatahoochee River north of Peachtree Creek, west of Roxboro Rd/Peachtree Dunwoody all the way north to I 285. The city recognizes a 28 acre area as “Buckhead” but the residents call the larger area “Buckhead”.
The Atlanta History Center with the Swan Coach House
The Swan Coach House, was originally a private home designed by famed architect Philip Trammell Shutze. It was purchased by the Atlanta History Center and restored to its original glory. The home and gardens include the Tullie Smith Farm which is one of the few buildings to survive the Civil war. It was built in 1840 and was brought to the grounds in 1969. The outbuildings and gardens were recreated and it provides a facinating glimpse of the life in Georgia before the Civil war. The Atlanta History Center is l ocated at 130 West Paces Ferry Rd NW Atlanta 30305. The Swan House and the Tulllie Smith Farm and the 33 acres of Gardens are a piece of Atlanta History.
