The College Park Historic District is one of the best kept secrets in the Atlanta metro area. With a small town feel, architecturally significant homes, and a commercial main street of restaurants, boutiques, and other small businesses ….this quaint neighborhood has it all.
The historic district comprises the historic core of the City of College Park. It was listed in the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior in 1996. The district includes the historical portions of the city’s residential areas, the town’s commercial center, and the city government complex. The houses represent a myriad of architectural styles from the late 1890s through the 1940s, including: Queen Anne, Folk Victorian, Craftsman, and several revival styles, including Dutch Colonial, Spanish Colonial, and Georgian. Many of the houses, the schools, as well as the churches, were designed by known architects whose works have been previously recognized, including Leila Ross Wilburn, Atlanta’s only female architect for nearly fifty years, and William J.J. Chase, noted for his school designs.
