Wednesday May 12th at 6:30 PM - General Meeting
The General Meeting of the Historic Brookhaven Neighborhood Association was held on Wednesday, May 12 at Capital City Club. A new directory has been designed and was distributed to all HBNA members during the first quarter.  New monuments have been designed and the first one was placed at the corner of Club Drive and Peachtree Road. A new landscaping contract with Fallen Leaves was executed.  The association has increased its revenue from advertising as well as growing membership over last year.  An enhanced website has been designed and is now online.  Mark Stovin gave an update on the progress of Little Nancy Creek Park.

This year, the Historic Brookhaven neighborhood celebrates its 100th anniversary.  As part of the festivities marking this occasion, a program on Brookhaven’s roots was presented by Paul Hudson, former Oglethorpe registrar.  Over the years, Hudson has written numerous articles on historic Brookhaven for the Brookhaven Buzz.  According to Hudson, Brookhaven and Oglethorpe University’s histories are closely intertwined. Brookhaven was the end of the line for the 23 Oglethorpe streetcars coming from Downtown Atlanta, and later the 23 Oglethorpe bus line.

Many of the neighborhood streets such as Lanier, Woodrow and Inman are named for supporters and faculty of the Oglethorpe University.  The heavily wooded Brookhaven area was a popular weekend retreat from the city and homes were built around the Brookhaven Country Club.  Local landmarks included the House Plantation - occupied by Sherman at one time and now the clubhouse of the Peachtree Golf Club.  House Road, now named Windsor Parkway, led to the plantation.

Hudson’s recollections included the old railroad station where Marta is now located. Brookhaven Park was the site of a Veterans Hospital founded at the end of World War I; it continued to serve veterans until the 1960s when it was relocated to Clairmont Road.

Peachtree DeKalb Airport was the site of Camp Gordon, an army training facility, and Oglethorpe University (then a college) functioned as a "little West Point."  Brookhaven Country Club was purchased by Capital City Club and was a popular gathering spot for the famous after World War II.  It hosted such athletic giants as Bobby Jones and Babe Zaharias.  The Club also hosted city leaders such as Ivan Allen and Robert Woodruff as they planned for Atlanta’s future as a major business center.

The neighborhood that was built around the golf course was the first such planned neighborhood in Georgia.  Into the 50s, Brookhaven was still a small village. There was a small grocery, a bakery and a Woolworth’s.  Many of the neighborhood roads were still dirt and horses and horseback riders were a common site.

Jed Beardsley gave an update on the Brookhaven Foundation. It is a non-profit associated with the neighborhood whereby any donations to this entity would be tax deductible.
