Sandtown, Georgia

Sandtown, Georgia

Sandtown is a predominantly African-American neighborhood located southwest of Atlanta, Georgia. It is one of the Atlanta area's most affluent African American communties with the majority of the population belonging to the middle and upper middle class.

Sandtown and Buzzard's Roost were the two largest Indian villages in the area where Atlanta would develop. After the Trail of Tears and the government of Georgia divided the territory into counties, Sandtown ended up in Campbell (which was absorbed into Fulton in 1932 along with Milton).

The road now known as Cascade was originally an Indian trail known as the Sandtown Road and ran from the village on the Chattahoochee River near Utoy Creek east to through what became Five Points then to the vicinity of Decatur.

The neighborhood is served by State Routes 6, 154 and 166.

The Sandtown Community Association previously known as the Sandtown Homeowners Association is a registered nearly 20-year old community advocacy organization. It is a voluntary community based group that addresses issues regarding zonings, residential/commercial development, land use and education.
