Ansley Park Guided Walking Tour

Map to Location

Tour Atlanta’s first driving suburb, developed in 1904 as the dream of Edwin P. Ansley who envisioned a new motorcar-oriented suburb of wide, winding streets and green parks designed to attract Atlanta's wealthiest and most prestigious families. In fact, Ansley Park was home to Georgia's Governors Mansion for many decades and to Margaret Mitchell for most of her life. Ansley's vision of a gracious, harmonious neighborhood as an oasis in the midst of the bustling city of Atlanta lives on today in this National Register District.

Meet on the sidewalk in front of Rhodes Hall.
