The area, once populated by Native Americans, was the site of the opening shots of the bloody Battle of Peachtree Creek on July 20, 1864. Affluent homeowners in the early 20th century made this stretch of Peachtree Street, named Brookwood after society doyenne Emma Thompsons country mansion, one of Atlantas most elegant neighborhoods. Today, Brookwood Hills, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, is a leafy enclave of 350 homes within the city of Atlanta. Visitors call it an urban oasis- to city planners, it is a premier example of traditional neighborhood design.

To the generations of families who have grown up in its homes, played at its park and pool, joined its clubs, and fought its battles, Brookwood Hills is something much more--it is their hometown.
