The name East Atlanta Village primarily refers to the neighborhood's commercial district and is an eclectic neighborhood offering a wide variety of activities and recreation. South of Interstate 20 and east of Grant Park, East Atlanta is a great walkable neighborhood with active business and community associations.
Prior to the arrival of American colonists, the area had been dominated by the Creek Native American people. The Sandtown-Flat Shoals Trail existed along high ground as part of a trade route system between the Chattahoochee River and the coast. This trail would eventually become Flat Shoals Avenue.
By the late 1890s Asa Candler, Joel Hurt, Frederic Patterson, and Aaron Haas, founders of the Metropolitan Streetcar Company, developed the McPherson Park subdivision to provide ridership for their electric streetcar line and housing for new store clerks in the area. Lumber and railroad baron William Zuber built a large white columned frame mansion as a wedding present for his new bride on property that fronts Flat Shoals. The house is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
East Atlanta Village offers great restaurants, music venues, coffee shops and bookstores and hosts a number of popular annual events, including the East Atlanta Strut, B*ATL, the East Atlanta Craft Beer Festival, and the East Atlanta Twilight Criterium.
