Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward is one of the oldest areas in the city. Originally developed in the years immediately following the Civil War, the Old Fourth Ward’s history is deeply intertwined with the history of Atlanta. Most of the original homes, including the mansions that once lined Boulevard, were razed and replaced with apartment buildings or businesses over the years as the neighborhood has experienced times of prosperity and poverty. Today, however, the Old Fourth Ward is quickly reemerging as one of Atlanta’s great neighborhoods. Neighboring Inman Park and Poncey-Highland areas are also experiencing rapid revitalization. There are beautiful homes for sale and excellent investment opportunities in the Old Fourth Ward.

The Old Fourth Ward is bordered by….

·      Piedmont Ave. and Downtown Atlanta to the west

·      The Beltline, Poncey-Highland and Inman Park neighborhoods to the east

·      The Blue (east-west) MARTA line to the south

·      Ponce de Leon Ave to the North


The Old Fourth Ward is bisected by Boulevard. The neighborhood can be divided into three major areas:

·       The section west of Boulevard and north of Freedom Parkway has few single-family homes but includes the Atlanta Civic Center and large housing complexes.Home in Old Fourth Ward

·       East of Boulevard is found the largest concentration of single-family houses; here, especially south of Irwin Street, is perhaps the most eclectic part of the Old Fourth Ward. Auburn Avenue and Old Wheat Streets are streets that continue in the unique character of the Sweet Auburn neighborhood and Martin Luther King, Jr., National Historic Site on the west side of Boulevard, while Boulevard at Edgewood Avenue is now ground zero for a concentration of hip bars and restaurants.

·       The area furthest east along the BeltLine is a formerly industrial area where the former factory and warehouse space now contains some of Atlanta's best restaurants and galleries, located in complexes like Studioplex, and just across the BeltLine at Stove Works. In the very Homenortheast corner of the Old Fourth Ward is the southeast's largest building (by sheer volume), the former Sears building, later called City Hall East, and now called Ponce City Market, awaiting redevelopment.


Residents love the eclectic, urban environment with several hip restaurants and bars within walking distance. The Old Fourth Ward will continue to experience an influx of professionals of all ages who love the Intown Atlanta lifestyle.
