The story of Atlanta started in the early 1800’s as a railway town called Terminus, now downtown Atlanta. It soon changed name to Marthasville and then finally to Atlanta in 1847. The older neighborhoods like Grant Park, Inman Park and Midtown were considered suburban in the mid-late 1800’s. Newer neighborhoods like Ansley Park were established in 1905. The Atlanta History Center and Georgia Trust contain a treasure trove of information documenting the growth of Atlanta.
