As its name suggests, South Buckhead is located in the southern part of Atlanta's popular Buckhead area, near the I-75/85 Connector. In recent years, South Buckhead in Atlanta(or SoBu) has become increasingly known for the art galleries, shops and restaurants around Peachtree Road.
Its modern identity as a dining and shopping destination scarcely hints at South Buckhead's role in Atlanta history. The 1864 Civil War Battle of Peachtree Creek was fought in the vicinity of South Buckhead in Atlanta, and Civil War historic markers are present in the area today. Also making its home in South Buckhead is the Brookwood Hills neighborhood, named for a country estate that was built there in the late 19th century. A section of the historic South Buckhead in Atlanta neighborhood is included in the National Register of Historic Places. Another of South Buckhead's historic buildings is the Brookwood Amtrak station, built in 1918 but renovated for the 1996 Olympic Games.
