Vinings, located across the river from Atlanta, Georgia, is a very old community with a unique history. Called Crossroads at first, Vinings is where Hardy Pace operated a ferry that allowed people to cross the Chattahoochee River and where the Western & Atlantic Railroad headed north on its way to Chattanooga.
The area, where the bluffs run down to the river, was once rich farmland dotted with churches and stores. It evolved into a summer community where Atlantans traveled to find relief from the heat and later became a small commercial community of antique stores and eateries served by excursion buses.
Vinings, home to some of the best restaurants and finest homes in the area, is part of Cobb County's prosperous "Platinum Triangle" of important commercial development just up the interstate from Atlanta.
Highlights of Vinings include:
• Vinings on a Sunday Afternoon
• People of Vinings
• Nellie Mae Row
• Development and Preservation
