Looking at Buckhead today, it’s difficult to imagine Henry Irby purchasing the 202 acres surrounding the intersections of Peachtree, Roswell, and West Paces Ferry Roads in 1837 for just $650.00. History tells us after a large deer head was placed on a post near the tavern Irby owned in the mid-1880’s, the area officially became known as Buckhead. Annexed to the City of Atlanta in 1952, Buckhead has seen tremendous neighborhood and business growth, evolving into the vibrant community it is today where Southern charm meets cosmopolitan living. Known for its lush tree-lined streets, Buckhead is home to world-class shopping, dining and entertainment options surrounded by upscale neighborhoods with some of Atlanta’s finest single-family homes and high-rise condominiums.
