A Brief History of East Atlanta Village
After the Civil War, East Atlanta became a suburb of Atlanta. Moreland Avenue was little more than a dirt path along the county line, while Flat Shoals and Glenwood Avenues were the major highways that brought the farmers and their goods to town.
From the 1940s through the 1960s, the center of the neighborhood was subdivided and developed by the Williams brothers who were born and raised in East Atlanta and had built a lumber and concrete business nearby on Glenwood Avenue.
