After a brief decline when many houses were subdivided, Candler Park began an upswing in the late 1960’s that has continued through today. Candler Park retains many of the characteristics that made it popular at the turn of the century, including the small business districts catering to the neighborhood and easy access to downtown.

Candler Park was originally known as the city of Edgewood, until 1908 when local citizens petitioned to become part of Atlanta. Many of the homes at this time were larger estates, and have since been subdivided to accommodate the rapid expansion which occurred after becoming part of Atlanta.
