West Midtown, the Marietta Street Artery, or the Westside Design District— this hip, eclectic and fast-growing area of Atlanta has a lot to offer.
From industrial lofts to sleek minimalist condominiums, contemporary art museums to groovy arts centers, trendy shops to high design showrooms, and barbecue to Bacchanalia, the area up Marietta St. from Downtown or west on 10th and 14th Streets from Midtown has got it all.
This is a neighborhood with real authenticity.
The Huff House was likely the first structure in the area, at 70 Huff Road, just off Marietta Street, not far from Howell RR Station. It was built in 1855 over the foundation of their small homestead from about 1830.
1880’s Industrial buildings were part of Edward Van Winkles cotton-related machinery manufacturing, now The Goat Farm Arts Center.

The area built up just after the Civil War with a lot of mills and industry, not unlike this old Carriage Works, now offices.
