Whittier Mill Village dates back to 1895 when the village was developed to offer rented houses to the Whittier Textile Mill workers. It was designated as a Historic District in 2001. Some of the only pre-19th-century homes in Atlanta are in this charming community located just inside I-285 between South Cobb Drive and Bolton Rd along the Chattahoochee River and only minutes to I-75, I-285, Downtown, Buckhead, Midtown and the Smyrna/Vinings area. Whittier Mill Park is a 21-acre park that is the focus point for this community and home to the mill’s original tower. Many of the historic cottages in Whittier Mill Village offer features such as the original double-sided masonry fireplaces, heart-pine hardwood floors, bead-board walls, brick chimneys and inviting front porches.  Homes in Whittier Mill Village are currently priced between $250,000-300,000.
