Atlanta Georgia


Poncey-Highland district in Atlanta takes its name from the intersection of Ponce de Leon Avenue and North Highland. Dating back to the early 20th century, the Poncey-Highland neighborhood features a number of historical landmarks, such as the Ford Motor Company Assembly Plant, which is an outstanding example of early 20th-century commercial industrial architecture in Atlanta! Other enjoyable neighborhood attractions include the 24-hour Majestic Diner and the Plaza Theater, which has entertained Poncey-Highland moviegoers since 1939, as well as Manuel's Tavern, the site where Jimmy Carter announced his candidacy for governor in 1970.

The Poncey Highlands boasts yet another connection to the 39th president of the U.S. — the Atlanta neighborhood is home to The Carter Presidential Center, which consists of the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum plus The Carter Center. Atlanta's Freedom Park, one of the nation's largest public green spaces, also passes through the area of Poncey-Highland. The Virginia-Highlands, a popular retail and entertainment district, is the perfect shopping location for any visitor!
