After the Cherokee Indian removal in 1838, the state of Georgia began auctioning tracts of land along the Chattahoochee River. Predicting this area – today known as Vinings – would soon become a major railroad site, entrepreneur Hardy Pace began acquiring acres of land.
Pace and his family ran a tavern there for decades. The area – initially called Crossroads – was renamed Paces and later Vining’s Station. With an open-air pavilion and natural spring nearby, the spot became a popular weekend destination for affluent Atlantans.
Known for its charming village center and small-town feel, Vinings remains an attractive place to visit and live.
