Vinings, like Atlanta was developed by the Western and Atlantic Railroad, which in 1836 was owned and directed by the State to connect the Chattahoochee and Tennessee Rivers and to other railroads operating throughout Georgia. Back then, many of the inhabitants were railroad workers and their supervisor was an engineer whose main task was collecting mailbags each week from the postman. That engineer’s first name has never been revealed, but legend has it that his last name was Vinings!
In the late 1960’s, a well-known Atlanta developer, Felix Cochran, began to accumulate property in the Vinings area. His goal was to construct a “town center,” that would incorporate the historical Vinings past with modern day conveniences, where residents could commune with one another. Cochran’s goal was obtained 15 years later and the by product is the present Vinings Jubilee. Vinings Jubilee is a group of varied buildings each one offering a Victorian period feature. It is considered “downtown Vinings” where residents and visitors can enjoy fine dining and great shopping.
Vinings, unlike most neighborhoods, continues to pride itself on retaining its novel small-town charm.
Vinings is a city rich in history and charm. It is located in Cobb County and is just minutes from the excitement and opportunities of Atlanta.
Originally created by the Western & Atlantic Railroad and chartered by the state of Georgia in 1836 to connect the Chattahoochee and Tennessee Rivers to other railroads in Athens, Madison and Columbus, Vinings played a major part in the Civil War, with General William Sherman and his Union Troops using it to map out their target for Atlanta.
After the war ended, Vinings became a vacation spot for Atlanta residents looking for a quiet spot to spend the day. Social clubs formed around the Chattahoochee River and its “spa waters”, and moonshine flowed freely.
The residents and city officials of Vinings have, since the turn of the 19th century, worked hard to maintain the city’s integrity and uniqueness and eliminate much of the urban sprawl that had taken over neighboring cities.
