Kirkwood

If you have questions about Kirkwood we have answers!   Jon and I moved to Kirkwood in 1995 so we are long term residents of this amazingly vibrant neighborhood.

This neighborhood is unique in that it is both part of the City of Atlanta, and DeKalb County. An inner city community located just five miles from downtown, this area has been the focal point of gentrification issues in the city. The racial makeup of this community has gone from almost exclusively white at its inception, to almost entirely black in the 1960's and 1970's, to now a diverse racial makeup. While young white people looking for inexpensive places to call home have helped revitalize this community greatly, it has also led to the rise in property taxes, forcing some longtime black residents out. As more and more people move into the city, this issue will continue to exist. However, most residents of Kirkwood welcome the diversity and the quality of life improvements that the new residents have ushered in.
