Today, the quiet town of Vinings is a mix of older homes and neighborhoods mixed with newly constructed high-end townhomes. The delightful Vinings Jubilee outdoor shopping center is the focal point of town and the perfect destination for a shopping trip and a great meal. The Cobb Performing Arts Centre, located just minutes from Vinings, hosts Broadway shows, ballet, concerts, education shows, family performances and opera throughout the year. The home of the new Atlanta Braves baseball stadium is very close to Vinings. Vinings is popular for its close proximity to Buckhead and for its lower home prices and property taxes.
Vinings, previously known as “Crossroads” and then “Paces” is a charming town in Cobb County. Its early names derived from the initial use of the area as a meeting place for the Creek and Cherokee Indians and then after Hardy Pace, who began operating Pace’s Ferry across the Chattahoochee River in 1830. Vinings was eventually named after William H. Vining, who worked on railroad construction in the area. Located between Buckhead and Smyrna, Vinings was officially recognized as a community in 1904 after a one-lane bridge constructed across the Chattahoochee. The Vinings Historical Preservation Society was established in 1993 with the mission to preserve and maintain historical Vinings sites as well as educate the public about the history of the area.
Vinings is located within the Cobb County public school district. Public Schools in the area include Teasley Elementary, Campbell Middle School, and Campbell High School. Some nearby private schools include The Lovett School, The Westminster Schools, and Pace Academy.
