History and Homes for Sale in Buckhead -Atlanta GA

A bit of history about Buckhead – Atlanta, GA

​Allegedly getting its name from one of it’s earliest founders, Henry Irby, purchased a lot of land in 1838 and created a tavern and grocery story near Paces Ferry and Peachtree Rd.  It is rumored that Mr. Irby had prominently put a bucks head on display and the locals came to know this famous “Irbyville” spot as ‘ Bucks Head’.   Henry Irby maintained his ownership till he passed in 1879.   In the 1890’s residents and visitors knew the area as “Atlanta Heights” and that name stuck with the area until the 1920’s. Much of the area after that time was sparsely populated with vacation and seasonal homes set on large plots quite a distance from the roads.

In 1952 Buckhead was annexed by the City of Atlanta and is home to some of the finest luxury homes in the Southeast as well as the GA Governors Mansion.  It has a solid reputation for some of the best shopping at Lenox Square,Phipps Plaza (both built circa 1959 and thereafter) and other well established centers.  In fact the areas around Lenox, Peachtree and Piedmont Roads boasts upwards of $3 billion dollars in consumer buying power each year.
