Buckhead Georgia

Buckhead, a neighborhood located in the northern part of Atlanta, Georgia, gets its name from a local pioneer named Henry Irby. In the early 19th century, Irby established a tavern and general store at the intersection of what are now Peachtree, Roswell, and West Paces Ferry roads, which was a popular stop for travelers heading north from Atlanta.

According to local legend, Irby shot a large buck deer in the area and mounted its head on the wall of his tavern. The tavern became known as “the buck’s head,” and over time the surrounding area came to be called Buckhead.

However, some historians dispute this story and suggest that the name Buckhead may have derived from the fact that deer and other wildlife were once abundant in the area, making it a popular hunting ground for early settlers.

The Buckhead Inn

The Buck’s Head Tavern, was a popular stop for travelers heading north from Atlanta in the early 19th century. One notable figure who is said to have stopped at the Buck’s Head Tavern is General William T. Sherman, who famously marched through Georgia during the Civil War.

According to local legend, Sherman and his troops camped in the Buckhead area in July 1864, and the general himself is said to have stayed at the Buck’s Head Tavern.

Buckhead cityhood

Efforts to incorporate Buckhead as a separate city within the Atlanta metropolitan area have been ongoing for several years, and several individuals and organizations have been involved in the push for incorporation.

One of the most prominent advocates for Buckhead cityhood is the Buckhead Exploratory Committee, a group of community leaders and business executives who are leading the effort to create a new city. The committee was formed in 2020 and has been working to gather support for incorporation through community outreach, public meetings, and social media campaigns.

In addition to the Buckhead Exploratory Committee, several local politicians and elected officials have expressed support for Buckhead cityhood, including Georgia State Senator Brandon Beach and State Representative Todd Jones. Some members of the Atlanta City Council have also expressed openness to the idea of Buckhead becoming its own city, although others have voiced opposition.

Buckhead Cityhood Committee

In 2022, several news stories developed about Buckhead cityhood, and a website has marshalled resources and encourages yard signs, volunteers and helpers of all kinds at the Buckhead City Committee.

How Hemphill got its name

Northside Drive was first commissioned on top of Hemphill, which used to bend from its slanted orientation to go directly north. But the name of the road has nothing to do with growing hemp, a common crop from which to make rope, on a hill.

William Hemphill is a terrific Atlanta name from the past. According to Wikipedia, he attended the University of Georgia and fought in the Battle of Gettysburg where he suffered a serious head wound.

We don’t learn whether he was shot in the head, kicked in the head or any other details, but this certainly made him perfect for politics and the news business.

After the war, Hemphill became involved in the Atlanta Journal Newspaper, helped it to become profitable, and later became a city Councilman. In what is described as a close race, Hemphill defeated a Republican African American Mayoral candidate only remembered McKinley.

Hemphill Mayor in 1890

In those days, everybody in the south was a democrat, so this was a remarkable attempt at unseating the ‘old guard’ by McKinley. It’s a real shame that someone at Wikipedia does not have more information on McKinley, even if, at first, it might mostly be added to the Hemphill entry.

There is a Jacob McKinley buried in Oakland Cemetery, he was one of the most successful post slavery African Americans in Atlanta. Article here We can’t find proof that this is the same person. If you can run that down, this guy needs his own Wikipedia page.

Hemphill went on after Mayor to head up a Cotton States business group that held exhibitions, fixed prices and promoted southern cotton.

Hemphill was an engineer in college and received his degree from UGA in 1861. If someone in the archives could find more information on what disciplines within the field of engineering he studied, that would be fun to see added to his Wikipedia entry.

Another interesting Hemphill fact is that the Atlanta Waterworks around Howell Mill and Huff Road have Hemphill in their names for many features. Hemphill pump station, Hemphill pond and Hemphill Waste Treatment are just a few of the names around this facility.

Huff road predated William Hemphill by many years, so it is thought that because of his time in Atlanta City government, Hemphill and the Hemphill water works were dedicated to his name early in the 20th Century. William Hemphill died in 1902.

Northside Drive was called …

By the Mercedes Benz Dome, Northside Drive paved over Davis Street.


Simpson Street has been renamed Joseph E. Boone to the left here, and Ivan Allen Jr. to the right of Northside Drive. There is a gas station on the north west corner, and the area where the stub of Davis St. was left has been bulldozed and turned into a parking lot.

Lets look back in time and a little further south of Simpson.


A good landmark for these old maps is Mitchell Street, which is in the bottom center. At Davis Street, MLK, which goes around the south side of the dome jogs up Northside for a block, and Mitchell still runs west of Northside and east of Elliot.


In this 1903 map section, Vine St. is the left edge of the map and Davis is dead center, on the left edge of the three in the big 83.


Another notable street, that is now under the Dome is Haynes St. It still has a stop sign onto MLK and the street continues south of MLK at the Dome. Today, heading east on MLK/Mitchell at the Dome from Haynes, you also still find Magnum St. where the Hard Rock is located. Then you go under the bridge and you can still take a right turn onto Elliot Street, where there is an Atlanta Fire Station and Elliot Street Deli and Pub.

You can look at Elliot Street and Atlanta Fire Rescue Station 1 here
