Ansley Park History
Ansley Park, founded in 1904, was the ambitious endeavor of Atlanta businessman Edwin P. Ansley.[2] Edwin Ansley, along with other area businessmen, purchased a large tract of land located in between what is now Monroe Drive and Peachtree Street. Historic Ansley Park was developed with the intention of creating a desirable community nestled away from the commotion of city life for Atlanta’s wealthiest and most prestigious families.[3] The area was intentionally built to have an oasis-like feel, with wide streets, plush greenery and several parks. The Governor’s Mansion was located in Ansley Park for many years prior to its current location on W. Paces Ferry Road.[4] The Ansley Golf Club, established in 1912, has received recognition from Sports Illustrated as one of the top nine-hole golf courses in the nation. Ansley Golf Club members also enjoy the amenities of the town club and country club.[5] The Ansley Park Civic Association, in existence since the 1960s, continues to fulfill the dream of Edwin Ansley’s century-old vision.
