Established in the early 20th century, this beloved historic neighborhood is named for the intersection of Virginia Avenue and North Highland Avenue where the area’s residential and entertainment districts converge to form the heart of this dynamic community. Known for its century-old bungalows and historic multi-family dwellings, Virginia Highland is also home to Atlanta’s oldest continuously operating restaurant (Atkins Park, est. in 1922) and the city’s oldest operating fire station (Station #19, est. in 1924). Bounded by the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail to the west, Ponce De Leon Avenue to the south, Amsterdam Avenue to the north and Briarcliff Road to the east, Virginia-Highland plays host to numerous popular festivals and events throughout the year.
