Morningside was founded in 1931, but the majority of homes were built between 1918 and 1935. The tree-lined streets are filled with brick traditional homes, Craftsman bungalows and Tudor Revival homes – original, renovated and new construction. Many residents consider Morningside to be one of Atlanta’s most walkable neighborhoods because of its quiet streets lined with dogwoods, crepe myrtles and upscale historic homes.
There are many parks in Morningside including Sunken Garden, Lenox-Wildwood, Hillpine and Herbert Taylor. In addition to the neighborhood parks, Morningside has access to the Morningside Nature Preserve and the Daniel Johnson Nature Preserve—both filled with walking trails. Morningside is also home to the locally famous Alon’s, a European-style bakery that has been open since 1992.
