A Brief History of Kirkwood
Kirkwood was incorporated in 1899, as an early streetcar suburb of Atlanta. Today it is a socio-economically and racially diverse neighborhood that enjoys its proximity to Downtown, two MARTA stations, a rich tree canopy including protected forests, great schools, committed and involved neighbors, a growing retail district and a rich vein of Craftsman and Victorian homes on the National Register of Historic Places.
