Buckhead

Buckhead has a reputation as Atlanta’s most prosperous district, however its name reveals its backwoods beginnings. Buckhead, founded in 1837 traces its beginnings back to Henry Irby’s establishment where legend has it that Irby killed a deer and suspended the “buck head” where his patrons could view it.

Among the many real estate landmarks found in Buckhead are the Governor’s Mansion, located on West Paces Ferry Road, The SwanHouse, a renaissance revival built for Edward and Emily Inman and designed by architect Philip Trammell Schutze, as well as the home once lived in by legendary golfer Bobby Jones.

Today, Buckhead is known for its beautiful homes, fine hotels, exquisite restaurants and as one of the biggest shopping mecca’s in the southeast.
