Founded in the late 19th century, the Boulevard neighborhood became known as Athens’ first streetcar suburb. The ease and convenience of streetcar transportation caused suburban living to surge in popularity. Over the years, this beloved neighborhood has attracted a mix of residents that appreciate it not only for its convenient location but, more importantly, for its history, strong sense of community, and beautiful architecture.
From Pulaski to Pound and from Prince to the railroad track lies the Historic Boulevard neighborhood. This community is coveted by many for its close proximity to downtown Athens, Chase Street Elementary School, Piedmont Regional Hospital, The University of Georgia (UGA), award-winning Chase Street Elementary, as well as some of our favorite local restaurants including White Tiger Gourmet, Maepole, Heirloom, and Pulaski Heights BBQ.
In addition to its convenient location, many are attracted to the neighborhood’s curb appeal and history. The tree-lined streets provide a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle and the perfect place for a walk, jog or stroll near to home. Considered a “front porch” neighborhood, Boulevard encompasses a variety of incredible home architecture including Greek Revival, Queen Anne, and Neoclassical styles, a welcome sight and reminder of the history this neighborhood encapsulates.
