The History of Castleberry Hill
Castleberry Hill in the 1800s, was considered to be the hill along current Walker Street between Fair and Stonewall Streets, that was owned by Daniel Castleberry. The area was originally part of the red light district of Atlanta known as “Snake Nation”. It was here that snake oil salesmen were known to peddle their wares, and the area was thought to be entirely devoted to criminal and immoral activity.
Castleberry Hill changed after the civil war as it grew with the rebuilding city of Atlanta. It began as a residential district, with Peters Street serving as a trade and commercial strip to the residents and local railroad related businesses. The area continued to grow with the introduction of Atlanta’s first horse drawn trolley system, which was routed through the area. The area continued to grow and businesses boomed until about the 1950s. From the 50s to the 80s Castleberry Hill suffered like all other intown Atlanta neighborhoods when residents moved to the suburbs. Many of the commercial buildings were abandoned during this period as well.
Today, Castleberry Hill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and also holds Landmark District status in Atlanta because of its rich history. The area contains some of the largest and best concentrated railroad buildings in Atlanta, which are remnant of the old railway that first gave rise to the city. It is obvious that Castleberry Hill developed around the railway and streets, as many commercial buildings are uniquely placed with continuous frontage to street and railway lines. The remains of the old railway have left Castleberry Hill with a very distinctive urban look, which continues attract and inspire residents.
In recent years, Castleberry Hill has once again become a popular place to live. Many in Atlanta are moving back to intown addresses to accommodate their busy professional and social lives. Artists seem to have started the trend in Castleberry Hill as they began moving into the old warehouse buildings to live, work, and display their art. Others have caught on and are drawn to the community because of its location, history, diversity, and unique atmosphere. When many of the historic warehouses were converted in the 90s into residential lofts, there was a surge of interest in Castleberry Hill. To date, the population in Castleberry Hill continues to grow as this area moves forward as a leading intown Atlanta neighborhood.
