A stroll through Fairlie-Poplar

Walking through downtown, you’re bound to see some incredible architecture from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Nestled in the heart of downtown, between the Marietta, Peachtree, Luckie and Cone Streets, is the Fairlie-Poplar Historic District.

What was once known as the central business district and “Atlanta’s modern fireproof district” following its rebuilding after the Civil War, the area continued to develop during Atlanta’s emergence as the commercial center for Georgia and the Southeast. Some of the most notable buildings include the English-American Building (or Flatiron), built in 1897, and the U.S. Post Office and Courthouse, built in 1911.
