Collier Hills is the Beltline's Crown JewelStately Moderate Sized Buckhead Homes circa 1940
Collier Hills is a historic residential neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia. The neighborhood was founded in 1941. Collier Hills rests on the border between the Buckhead district of Atlanta and the Midtown district of Atlanta.
The area gets its name from the family whose homestead was broadly located in the southwest corner of the intersection of Peachtree St. and Collier Rd. Andrew Jackson Collier, a member of this family and early pioneer of the area, operated an antebellum grist mill off Tanyard Creek, near Collier Rd on the site of the now Tanyard Creek Park which is a lush is a 14.5-acre (5.9 ha) park. A 1-mile (1.6 km)-long BeltLine trail runs through the park – not along the BeltLine rail corridor itself but perpendicular to it. The trail begins at the west end of Colonial Homes neighborhood, proceeds west along the south end of Bobby Jones Golf Course, Louise G. Howard Park, under Collier Road and through Tanyard Creek Park, under a trestle bridge (active CSX rail line), connecting to both Ardmore Park in the Ardmore neighborhood and into the Tanyard Creek Urban Forest. The trail, and urban forest, terminates at Semel Circle, a new infill development area at the back of Brookwood neighborhood. The trail opened in April 2010.
A major Civil War battle took place in what is now Collier Hills as Confederate forces attacked forces led by General William T. Sherman in July 1864.
