WABE on the West End

From WABE Atlanta read about the West End, Past and Present… One of the oldest homes in Atlanta is about a mile and a half south of downtown in a community called the West End. It’s a two story greyish-blue home with white trim, a front porch, and a fireplace.

Oak trees shade the yard and stairs lead to the property from a charming brick sidewalk. The home sits back on its lot behind a wrought iron fence on Peeples Street, although that specific fence wasn’t there when the house was built in 1856. Read more.

West End bungalow renovation took teamwork and patience

West End bungalow renovation took teamwork and patience, owner says. Emi Piez originally thought she would buy a turnkey house. When she saw the eclectic and historic homes in Atlanta’s West End neighborhood, with its access to MARTA and the Beltline, she decided to tackle a renovation. Read more.

The West End Is A ‘Front Porch Community’

The West End MARTA station is more than just a stop for commuters. It’s a hub of sorts. Located at the bustling intersection of Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard and Lee Street.

The trains that pass by follow almost the exact same route the streetcar once did. Back when West End was one of the city’s first suburbs. Read more.

Only In Atlanta : West End
