The Peachtree District is actually a very historic district that predates the city of Atlanta. It is on the national register as a historic district. The area used to be home to the Creek Indians and wasn't reverted over to use by the city of Atlanta, officially until 1928, but it in fact got its start as an important Creek Indian trail.

The name for this district is somewhat in historical reference, and also named that way because of a geographical reference. The historical reference refers to the area in and around the area known as Peachtree Park, and this named held by the area carried down all the way since the Creek Indians were using the road that borders it as an important Indian trail. The geographical reference made is the fact that the road that runs through this district has been known as "Old Peachtree Road" since the development of the area.

The Peachtree District falls within the trendy Buckhead district of Atlanta. It is a classy neighborhood that is a desirable residential district. It rose up as a working class neighborhood that has never really went downhill. There are many old, historic, original structures in this district that provide a snapshot into the golden days of yore.

This area is often toured by those who admire old architecture. There are many different styles of homes sitting in the same district. You can find Tudor Revival in the same area as traditional minimal style. These houses are desired more so because many are kept in their original pristine condition, just as they were when they were built so long ago.

The homes are desired by many classes of people because the area was built to give a real community feel. There are sidewalks that run along a landscape that give off a real park like atmosphere. The district itself is often called Peachtree Park, because that is how the neighborhood feels, like a park. It is a true working class neighborhood that is still functioning, and even more than that, it is thriving.
