Legend has reported that in 1837, a man named Henry Irby purchased 203 acres in what is now the center of the most posh and upscale suburb on Atlanta known as “Buckhead.” He opened a tavern and grocery store at the northwest corner of Roswell Road and West Paces Ferry Road that became a stopping place for travelers who were traveling through the countryside. At some point in the mid 1800’s, the head of a large deer was put on a post not far from Irby’s. From then on, the name “Buckhead” was given to the area and that is what it is still called today. It did not take long for the area to grow and by the early 20th century many of the Atlanta’s wealthiest citizens were residing in this area just north of Downtown. In 1952, the City of Atlanta annexed Buckhead. Often referred to as the Beverly Hills of the East, Buckhead is home to some of the most stunning estates and elegant homes, has fabulous fine dining and upscale shopping, and boasts some of the best private schools in the country.
