Neighborhoods - Tuxedo Park

The name alone exudes wealth. Grandiose Georgian, Tudor, Italian, and Greek Revival mansions line the streets. Now one of Buckhead’s most prestigious neighborhoods, Tuxedo Park was once woodland and farms. Wealthy Atlantans started building summer homes along West Paces Ferry in the early 1900s. Large tracts of land were purchased and sold off to well-to-do men and women, including Robert Maddox, a banker and future mayor. Among the neighborhood’s most noteworthy properties is the Governor’s Mansion. — Cleo Durham
