Peachtree Heights West Civic Association

Welcome to Our Neighborhood

Nestled under a cathedral canopy of ancient oaks, magnolias and pines, neighbors journey through the rolling hills and coveted, winding paths of Peachtree Heights West and bask in the glow of one of the city's prized neighborhoods. You feel the joy of this place when you walk here - neighbors who stop to speak or share a tale about an accompanying precious pup, colleagues who meet at the city's History Center to learn about our past and propel our city forward, or just a quiet stroll along sidewalks on broad streets that lead to homes designed by the names of architects including Hentz, Pringle, Reid, Schutze and many more.

On the National Historic Register since 1980, approximately 550 families call this community less than 15 minutes from downtown their "home", and their care for this bucolic common comes to fruition through their pride in the Peachtree Heights West Civic Association, whose parties, picnics, parks and policies are sure to please all who become a part of its fabled spirit. For more on the benefits of this membership, see Explore.

Security Patrol

Peachtree Heights West is proud to be considered one of the safest neighborhoods in Atlanta. To help keep it that way, we provide supplemental security from an amazing group of off-duty Atlanta police led by respected Atlanta police Lieutenant, Jeff Baxter. Their service augments the Atlanta Police Department through daily patrols throughout our neighborhood keeping a watchful eye out for our residents.

As a member of the PHWCA, you benefit from this security patrol within our neighborhood boundaries. Every day, Lt. Baxter or a member of his team spends 5-6 hours patrolling the streets of Peachtree Heights West. The rotate hours patrol operates on a random basis over 24 hours for maximum effect and ensures that the association’s supplemental hours do not overlap with the hours provided to Peachtree Battle Alliance. Effectively this provides 10-12 hours of supplemental security patrol.

Association Gatherings

From parties to public policies, parks and, preservation, Peachtree Heights West offers a plethora of special opportunities for families who live within its borders and join the association.

The highlights of membership are the spectacular parties thrown twice a year by members, for members! Each spring and fall, the association hosts an adults-only cocktail party at a member’s home. Libations, hor d’oeuvres, music and entertainment make these parties a must of the social season.
Our board hosts an Annual Meeting in McElreath Hall at the History Center. This meeting is designed to gather our neighborhood together to visit and to learn what has happened in the community over the past year as well as what is on the horizon for the year ahead from community experts and the Atlanta City Council.

Neighborhood History

At the onset of the 20th Century, Wash Collier owned the virgin forest that stretched from 14th Street to Buckhead. He died in 1903 and Eretus Rivers, owner of the Peachtree Heights Company, acquired 500 acres of undeveloped woodlands on the west side of Peachtree Road from the Collier estate…

This acreage began at Peachtree Creek and extended northward. Part of this parcel would become the Peachtree Heights West neighborhood and part would become the adjacent neighborhood of Haynes Manor. At the entrance to the development near the intersection of Peachtree Road and Peachtree Battle Avenue, Rivers built a small classic house to be used as a sales office. That structure is still actively used today by the Atlanta Public School System.
