Castleberry Hill began its history as an infamous enclave of huts called “Snake Nation” hosting an array of unsavory characters. After the Civil War, the area became industrialized attracting business such as cotton warehouses and grocers The neighborhood was named after one such grocer Dan Castlebarry. Castleberry Hill was listed in the national register of historic places in 1985. In the 1990’s the neighborhood slid into decline to the point where it became a popular filming site for dystopian movies. By the mid 1990, many of the old industrial buildings were converted to lofts and the 1996 Atlanta Olympics brought additional development to Castleberry Hill. Today the neighborhood is a diverse thriving community home to restaurants, shops, apartments and condos, while still maintaining much of its pre-gentrification charm.
