Howell Station in the Westside of Atlanta was developed as the Western and Atlanta Railroad came through Atlanta in the late 1800s. It is now a tucked away residential oasis in a sea of light-industrial activity. It’s near Marietta Street, West Marietta Boulevard, and the Fulton County Jail, across from Bellwood Quarry, which will be the city’s biggest park when completed. It is near King Plow Arts Center as well. There are four historical churches, and Knight Park, which is the heart of Howell Station. It has an open space with sloping hills, mature trees, tennis courts, and a playground. Howell Station includes a historic district recognized on the National Register of Historic Places.
The houses are mostly three bedrooms homes that sell for high $200,000s – low $300,000s. The houses cover a range of 19th and 20th century styles: Neo-Classical Revival, Colonial Revival, Bungalow, Craftsman, Folk Victorian, Gabled-Ell cottage, Shotgun, Georgian cottage, Queen Ann cottage, New South parlor, and Hall-Parlor.
There is an active Home Owner’s Association that hosts several events like a July 4th parade, chili cook-off, Halloween parties, Monday Night Brewery, Easter Egg hunts, and Neighborhood Beautification Days. Howell Station offers a voluntary security patrol to all neighborhood homes.
The schools in the area are Centennial Academy, Inman Middle, and Grady High School.
