Developed in the late 1920s, Haynes Manor takes its name from its developer, Eugene Haynes, who subdivided his Haynes Manor estate. The neighborhood's spectacular entrance from Peachtree Road along Peachtree Battle Parkway gives the area a wonderful, European flavor.
The parkway, once known as Battle Avenue, commemorates the bloody Civil War Battle of Peachtree Creek in which thousands died. The creek forms the southern border of the neighborhood. Now the chain of parks running down the center of the parkway draws joggers, birdwatchers and strollers.
Homes in Haynes Manor echo its name, many resembling small manor houses in the English and French styles. The first homes, on large lots, were sited on the either side of the parkway. Among the most unusual is the Evans-Cucich House at 306 Peachtree Battle Ave. Built in 1935 and designed by architect A.F.N. Everett, it is one of the few Art Deco homes in Atlanta. Later homes followed in the 1930s and '40s and tend to be smaller on smaller lots, but still follow traditional styles.
Atlanta Memorial Park, almost 200 acres, borders Peachtree Creek on the south side of Haynes Manor and includes the Atlanta Memorial Golf Club and Bitsy Grant Tennis Center. Woodward Habersham Park, where Woodward Way runs into Habersham Road, is a densely forested conservation area.
The Haynes Manor Park and Memorial Park Trail, a 5.1-acre tract between Sagamore Drive and Peachtree Battle Avenue across Northside Drive from Ahavath Achim Synagogue, is being developed by the PATH Foundation as a park and multi-use trail from the Haynes Manor neighborhood, past the Bobby Jones Golf course, through Tanyard Creek Park, and ending at Georgia Tech.
Huge, old trees line the neighborhood's streets, which include Alton Road, Whitmore Drive, Havenridge Drive, Manor Ridge Drive, Westover Drive, Montview Drive and Dellwood Drive, as well as Peachtree Battle Parkway.
Haynes Manor schools (see Buckhead Education) include E. Rivers Elementary, Sutton Middle School and North Atlanta High School. Shopping, restaurants and public transportation are nearby along Peachtree Road. Some Information provided by http://www.buckhead.org/haynesmanor
