This verdant, diverse, and quiet neighborhood has a storied history of being a good place to settle down and raise a family ? while still being close to the East Atlanta haunts you enjoyed in your younger days ? and is home to Morelli?s Ice Cream. Former Creek Indian territory, the area was turned into farmland by the Georgia land lottery, and once housed the Confederate Soldiers Home. Ormewood got its name from Aquilla Orme, whose extension of the trolley line improved the area. Its Victorian and Craftsman homes date back to WWI; you can still find a few "catalog" prefabs surviving today.
