Ormewood Park is just east of downtown Atlanta and is among the most historically intact of the 45 neighborhoods surrounding the Atlanta BeltLine, according to historian Brandy Morrison. Ormewood Park contains plenty of green spaces, as indicated by its name; is home to the Robert Burns Cottage, which dates back to the 1920s and is a replica of the internationally acclaimed Scottish poet’s birth home; and it is bordered by the Atlanta BeltLine to the west, Moreland Avenue to the east, Faith Avenue to the north and East Confederate Avenue to the south. Home styles include Victorian cottages, bungalows, traditionals and ranches.
