About Buckhead

Buckhead is an affluent uptown district of Atlanta, comprising approximately the northern fifth of the city.  Buckhead is a major commercial and financial center of the Southeast United States, and it is the third-largest business district in Atlanta, behind Downtown and Midtown.  The district’s highrise office buildings, hotels, and condominiums form a highly urbanized core along Peachtree Road.  Surrounding this dense core are Buckhead’s suburban neighborhoods, which feature large single-family homes situated among dense forests and rolling hills.


In 1838, Henry Irby purchased 202.5 acres surrounding the present intersection of Peachtree, Roswell, and West Paces Ferry roads from Daniel Johnson for $650.  Irby subsequently established a general store and tavern at the northwest corner of the intersection.  The name Buckhead comes from a story that Irby killed a large buck deer and placed the head in a prominent location.  Prior to this, the settlement was called Irbyville.  By the late 1800’s, Buckhead had become a rural vacation spot for wealthy Atlantans.  In the 1890’s, Buckhead was rechristened Atlanta Heights but by the 1920’s it was again “Buckhead”.

Buckhead remained dominated by country estates until after World Ward I, when many Atlanta’s wealthy began building mansions among the area’s rolling hills.  Despite the stock market crash of 1929, lavish mansions were still constructed in Buckhead throughout the Great Depression.  In 1930, Henry Aaron Alexander built one of the largest homes on Peachtree Road, a 15,000-square foot house with 33 rooms and 13 bathrooms.  The community was annexed by Atlanta in 1952, following an earlier attempt by Mayor William B. Hartsfield in 1946 that was voted down by residents.

Buckhead’s Lenox Mall was designed by Joe Amisano, an architect who designed many of Atlanta’s modernist buildings.  When Lenox Square opened in 1959, it was one of the first malls in the country, and the largest shopping center in Southeastern U.S. Office development soon followed with the construction of Tower Place in 1974
