Grant Park consists of Grant Park itself and the surrounding neighborhood. It is Atlanta’s largest historic district. Most of the buildings are residences, although there are several Bed & Breakfasts, restaurants, small businesses, and an old cotton mill.
Grant Park is home to Zoo Atlanta and the Oakland Cemetery. Oakland Cemetery is the oldest cemetery in Atlanta, founded in 1850. Twenty-five former Atlanta mayors, six former Georgia governors, and nearly 7,000 Confederate soldiers are buried here.
