Grant Park is Atlanta’s largest and oldest historic district and surrounds its oldest city park. Established in the late 19th century, the Grant Park neighborhood the most Victorian architecture in Atlanta. Most buildings were built between the neighborhood’s founding in 1882 and the first decades of the 20th century.
Large two-story mansions face the park, more modest two-story, modified Queen Anne houses were built on surrounding streets, and one-story Victorian era cottages and Craftsman bungalows were built to the east of the park. Grant Park is home to the Atlanta Zoo, the Cyclorama and steps away from Turner Field and the historic Oakland Cemetery.
