Buckhead is the "chic” affluent uptown shopping, dining, and entertainment district of Atlanta, in Fulton County and comprising approximately the northern fifth of the city.
Situated in the heart of the metro area, Buckhead roughly covers the interior of the "V" formed by Interstate 85 on the east and Interstate 75 on the west. Buckhead is bordered to the northwest by Cumberland and Vinings in Cobb County, Sandy Springs to the north, Brookhaven and North Druid Hills to the east, Midtown to the south and West Midtown to the west. Buckhead, with a population of approximately 80,000 and known for its expansive single-family homes and rolling hills, has continued to blossom into a major commercial and financial hub for the Southeast.
Originally known as Irbyville, the name "Buckhead" comes from a story that Irby killed a large buck deer and placed the head in a prominent location. Buckhead was annexed by Atlanta in 1952. In 1956, Buckhead was chosen as the site for a major shopping center to be known as Lenox Square. When opened in 1959, Lenox Square was one of the first malls in the country, and the largest shopping center in the Southeastern U.S. Office development soon followed with the construction of Tower Place in 1974 and hasn't slowed down yet.
