The best word to describe the Kirkwood neighborhood is historic. Kirkwood began developing in the late 19th century. In the early 20th century, it was connected by streetcar to the rest of Atlanta. As with the rest of the city, the community’s racial and social makeup went through major changes as local schools went through forced segregation. Today, the community has started to flourish again as middle-class families move into town.
