High Point History

High Point Civic Association History
For over 30 years, The High Point Civic  Association has been serving the residents living in the High Point area of Sandy Springs, Georgia. The Association was established to preserve and enhance the integrity of our neighborhood by promoting sound land use and strong community bonds.
The High Point Civic Association, covering approximately four square miles in southeastern Sandy Springs,  generally encompasses in its purview all households in Sandy Springs south of I-285 and east of Roswell Road to the border with Brookhaven.  To the south, we share a border with North Buckhead.  Approximately 4,000 homes are located in the High Point neighborhood.
 
High Point History
In the early 1900's, the High Point neighborhood was mainly comprised of farms and summer estates owned by Atlanta's wealthier residents, some of whom used the homes as hunting lodges in the winter. The Butler House, or Belle Manor as it is often called, is located at 5229 Roswell Road and is one of the last remaining stately homes on Roswell Road.  Built in the 1920s, the home recalls the Greek Revival architecture associated with antebellum Georgia. The grounds of the home showcase large trees and heirloom plants.  Recently, Belle Manor was purchased by a law firm and now houses its offices.
