Paces, Atlanta

Paces is a Fulton county line. Just across the river in Cobb is the unincorporated community of Vinings, which was originally known as Paces after founder Hardy Pace, who operated Pace's Ferry. Cumberland is also located on the other side of the river. It is perhaps Atlanta's most affluent neighborhood, with many of the homes selling in the $5–$7 million range, and some reaching upwards of $20 million.

History

At the southern end of Paces where Peachtree Creek flows into the Chattachoochee was the Creek Indian settlement of Standing Peachtree, the closest Indian settlement to what became Atlanta.

Geography

The main road through the community is Interstate 75, which divides Paces from the rest of Buckhead aside from the Underwood Hills, Margaret Mitchell, and Pleasant Hill neighborhoods which are also West of I-75. West Wesley Road runs South of the center of Paces, and Paces continues almost until where Ridgewood Rd meets Moore's Mill Road in Bolton, though stops slightly before that at the bridge across Cross Creek. It is also bordered by Nancy Creek on the Southeast.[1][2][3]

Famous residents

In 2007 Tyler Perry bought a 17-acre (6.9 ha) estate[4] in Paces at 4110 Paces Ferry Road NW.[5][6][7]
