Ansley Park, Easton
Easton Georgia was the name of a small community that now is the Morningside Lennox Community. Also not far from Ansley Mall, Easton was a farming community and the creeks in the Morningside area were used by farmers for power for their mills. In the days before electricity, the water travelling downstream was gathered in a flue that turned a waterwheel that powered a mill. Mills were used to saw wood, grind grain and for cotton gins. Easton Georgia become a stop on the railroad line running from Toccoa to Atlanta in 1876, in those days Plaster Bridge Road, later renamed Piedmont was unpaved.
The population of Easton Georgia was less than one hundred people until around 1890. The earliest development around the area was in the Ansley Park and Virginia Highland communities. Virginia Highland is thought to be one of Atlanta’s earliest commuter suburbs, trolleys ran from Atlanta to the suburban area east of Boulevard. James R. Smith and M.S. Rankin build eight homes in Morningside Park in 1923, they advertised their new suburban development that also allowed streetcar commuting as a new type of suburb.
