A bit of history about Ansley Park

Ansley Park is on the National Register of Historic Places as "Atlanta's First Automobile Suburb."

Ansley Park is now part of Midtown, a designation coined in 1972 for the area roughly between North Avenue and Perishing Point, Monroe Drive and Georgia Tech.

Originally the land know as Ansley Park, was farm land owned by the Collier family. In 1904, Edwin P. Ansley began developing the land, which at first was called Peachtree Garden.
