Atlantans might know Mechanicsville as the host of the Atlanta Fair, home to Atlanta native and hip hop artist T.I.?s character in the movie ATL, or even as a former parking lot for Braves games. But few are likely to be familiar with its history as one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. Mechanicsville was established in the late 19th century at the intersection of several railway lines (the name comes from the ?mechanics? who worked on the tracks), and it became a diverse and thriving downtown hub. In its heyday, the community was home to the well-known Rich family, of department store fame.
