Buckhead

Buckhead is an affluent uptown district of Atlanta, Fulton County,Georgia, comprising approximately the northern fifth of the city. Buckhead is a major commercial and financial center of theSoutheast, and it is the third-largest business district in Atlanta, behind Downtown and Midtown. The district's highrise office buildings, hotels, and condominiums form a highly urbanized core along Peachtree Road. Surrounding this dense core are Buckhead's suburban neighborhoods, which feature large single-family homes situated among dense forests and rolling hills.

In 1838, Henry Irby purchased 202 1/2 acres surrounding the present intersection of Peachtree, Roswell, and West Paces Ferry roads from Daniel Johnson for $650. Irby subsequently established a general store and tavern at the northwest corner of the intersection.[1] The name "Buckhead" comes from a story that Irby killed a large buck deer and placed the head in a prominent location.[2][3] Prior to this, the settlement was called Irbyville.[3][4] By the late 1800s, Buckhead had become a rural vacation spot for wealthy Atlantans.[5] In the 1890s, Buckhead was rechristened Atlanta Heights but by the 1920s it was again "Buckhead".[6][7]
