Ardmore Park, Atlanta

This summer, while interning in Atlanta at a cultural resources management company, I have been living a charming neighborhood in Buckhead named Ardmore Park, which is part of Collier Hills. The area was the site of the Battle of Peachtree Creek during the Civil War. Though the houses in Ardmore Park weren’t built until shortly after World War II, they look much older. I’m not usually a fan of revival architecture, but the examples in Ardmore Park are very well done and well maintained. See for yourself.

A few of the historic condos built in the 1920s are on the National Register of Historic Places.

The hills are a challenge for landscape architects.

I like Modernism, but it doesn’t fit in here.

How did that really cool, Gator blue car get in there?
