To see residents talking about growing up in Ansley Park from the early days of the 20th century through the 1970's, and to hear how residents saved Ansley Park from commercial development in the mid-to-late 1960's and early 1970's, click here  for the History and Preservation Committee's web page. You will find several videos with former and current Ansley Park residents describing their efforts to keep Ansley Park as one of the unique and best neighborhoods in the U.S.


 

 

 

 

 

First developed in 1904, Ansley Park was the dream of Edwin P. Ansley who along with several prominent businessmen of the time, purchased a large plot of land north of the city from longtime owner George Washington Collier.  Ansley envisioned a new motorcar-oriented suburb of wide winding streets and green parks designed to attract Atlanta's wealthiest and most prestigious families.  In fact, Ansley Park was home to Georgia's Governor's mansion for many decades.

 

Ansley's vision of a gracious, harmonious neighborhood that would be an oasis in the midst of the bustling city of Atlanta lives on today, in great part thanks to the efforts of the Ansley Park Civic Association.  Since the 1960's, the Association has been an active force in maintaining the neighborhood's integrity and sense of community.
