One of the Atlanta area’s most desirable neighborhoods, Vinings is an upscale, unincorporated town in Cobb County along the banks of the Chattahoochee River, just west of Buckhead.
Officially established in 1904, Vinings takes its name from William H. Vining, who was instrumental in the construction of the Western and Atlantic Railroad tracks that were laid from Atlanta to Chattanooga in the 1840’s, during which time Vinings was a main base station. Vinings, like many other parts of Atlanta, has an interesting story of historical significance in relation to the Civil War. Indeed, during the Atlanta Campaign and his March to the Sea, Sherman’s Union Army occupied Vinings.
With an area of about 3.3 square miles, Vinings not only offers the convenience of central location and easy access to Buckhead and Midtown, but also provides the added benefit of low Cobb County taxes. With its quiet streets and small-town feel, residents can often be found walking the neighborhood for recreation. The restaurants in and around Vinings Jubilee in historic Vinings Village are favorite gathering places, and the boutiques and other retail establishments are perennially popular.
Generally speaking, homes in the area tend toward the traditional, although some contemporary, French Provincial, and Mediterranean style homes can also be found. Additionally, there is a wide variation in age and scale, from 1960’s ranches, to multi-million dollar new constructions, and everything in between. Vinings is also home to some of the finest luxury condominium complexes in Atlanta, including The Aberdeen and One Vinings Mountain.
Residents of Vinings are zoned to Teasley Elementary School, Campbell Middle School, and Campbell High School, all part of the Cobb County School System. Additionally, several of the city’s top private schools are just moments away.
