About the Buckhead area of Atlanta

In 1838, Henry Irby purchased the area now known as Buckhead for $650, where he established a tavern and general store. The name Buckhead is rumored to have come from a story that Irby killed a large deer and placed its head in a highly traveled area that locals began calling "Buckhead".

The Buckhead area was a well-known suburb of Atlanta that was famous for the amount of bars and clubs located there. Once populated by the wealthy citizens of Atlanta, Buckhead has many lavish mansions that still stand to testify to an era when the rich used the district as a rural vacation spot.

Today, Buckhead is the third largest business district in Atlanta following downtown and midtown, with high-rise offices, condos and hotels located here. In 1959, Lenox Square, one of the first shopping malls in the United States and the largest in the South opened to patrons delight. Joe Amisano, the architect that designed many of Atlanta's modernist buildings, also designed Lenox Square.

Starting in 2000, the residents of Buckhead began a revitalization project to stop the crime associated with the wild nightlife there and to bring in more housing for a higher quality of life. Atlanta city Council passed a law that required the bars to close at 2:30 am instead of 4 am and liquor license were harder to obtain. Over the years, most of the bars have been bought by a committee that is dedicated to revitalizing Atlanta and have been torn down. The west side and the northern areas of Buckhead are now mainly residential, single family homes in a wooded setting. Peachtree Road corridor is mostly high-rise office buildings and commercial shopping areas.
