Brookwood Station


Commonly referred to as Brookwood Station, Peachtree Station was built between Buckhead and Midtown in 1918 as a suburban stop for the Southern Railway, originally serving 21 trains daily.

Designed by architect Neel Reid, the Italian Renaissance-style station features Palladian windows and classical elements including pilasters and a molded entablature. Visitors often note its small size and high elevation above the tracks, which were typical of a suburban stop at that time.

After downtown’s Terminal Station’s closing in 1970, Peachtree Station became the only open passenger station in Atlanta, although its replacement is currently being considered by tenant Amtrak.
