This week, we focus on the Summerhill neighborhood, home to Turner Field.
It's Bounded by I-75 and Pollard Boulevard SW to the west, Fulton Street SW and I-20 to the north, Grant Terrace SE and Connally Street SE to the east, and Ormond Street SE on the South.
The neighborhood, which traces its beginnings back to 1885, was home to free blacks and Jewish immigrants. For a time, it prospered and was considered home to the most prominent business and civic leaders.
Among the community's most prominent sons: Herman J. Russell, chairman of construction firm H.J. Russell & Co. and , former Atlanta mayor and current Buckhead Coalition president.
