Peek into Atlanta's history. Cruise through the affluent Buckhead community, learning its history, view upscale mansions. We also drive through historical Ansley and Grant Park area viewing its stately homes. Most buildings were built between the neighborhood's founding in 1882 and the first decades of the 20th century. Grant Park contains the largest remaining area of Victorian architecture in Atlanta. We also visit inside LP Grant Mansion, the oldest home in Atlanta. The three-story, Italianate mansion was built in 1856 by Lemuel Pratt Grant (1817-1893), a city pioneer, railroad magnate and philanthropist who donated 100 acres to the city of Atlanta for Grant Park. Surviving the Civil War, the house was the 1902 birthplace of golf legend Robert Tyre “Bobby” Jones and its preservation was, at one time, a passion of Margaret Mitchell, the author of Gone with the Wind.
