Old Fourth Ward Homes
In the late 19th century, one of Atlanta’s most desirable neighborhoods was the Old Fourth Ward, just east of Downtown Atlanta. The area fell into disrepair in the 1960s but has risen from the cobwebs of history to become an authoritative symbol of the intelligent gentrification of the Georgia capital.
Old Fourth Ward of today showcases abandoned warehouses that have been converted into areas for small businesses and modern lofts. These thriving commercial and residential properties are flourishing while maintaining the authenticity of this historic region.
Residents and visitors to the area can visit the boyhood home of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church. When night falls, Atlanta’s nightlife is showcased along Edgewood Avenue with a collection of bars featuring that authentic Atlanta edge. If street art is more to your liking, the annual Living Walls, the City Speaks conference attracts street artists from across the U.S. to help transform drab brick buildings into works of art.
The restoration and preservation of the historical flavor of the Old Fourth Ward are apparent in the homes available for purchase and rent throughout the area. From the renowned Auburn Avenue area to the Jackson Street Bridge, Old Fourth Ward is again becoming one of Atlanta’s most sought-after living communities.
