The Atlanta Building Age Map

The Atlanta Building Age Map reveals the age of every building in the city of Atlanta. It shows that some of the city's oldest buildings are located near Clark Atlanta University, and Morehouse & Spelman colleges.

The map follows the now well established format of building age maps. Building footprints are colored on the map by year of construction. You can also click on individual buildings to reveal their year of construction. The map legend includes a filter control which allows you to select to view buildings built in 20 year periods. The filter provides a handy way to show when Atlanta's different neighborhoods were constructed.

If you are interested in learning more about Atlanta's oldest buildings then you might be interested in the Saporta Report's article on the map, The Age of Atlanta, Mapped and Buildings to Visit. In this article the map is accompanied by information and photographs of some of the cities most historical buildings.
