A century ago, the Village of Vinings, Georgia, was a popular spot for Atlanta residents to enjoy a day of picnicking and dancing. Today, the appeal of the Atlanta suburb lives on at the restaurants, nationally-known stores and shopping boutiques of Vinings Jubilee, where the modern-day version of 19th-century architecture hints at the old railroad town's past. The Vinings Historic Preservation Society maintains several of the community's historic buildings, while historic markers serve as reminders that Mt. Wilkinson, nicknamed Vinings Mountain, played a role in the Civil War Battle of Atlanta. More than 140 years after Mt. Wilkinson afforded General Sherman a glimpse of the city he was destined to burn, a high-rise office building offers an excellent view of downtown Atlanta from atop the mountain. Vinings, GA, is located northwest of Atlanta, just inside the I-285 Perimeter. Outdoor recreation is available at the nearby Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, which offers fishing, boating, rafting, hiking and other activities. The historic village celebrates its past as well as its present and future during the annual Vinings Heritage Day.
