Where is Lindbergh – Morosgo?

Lindbergh – Morosgo is a neighborhood within Buckhead where retail and businesses line the streets. A freight railroad line stretches across the northwest boundary.

I-85 and Peachtree Creek run along the southeast, and Armour Industrial stretches along the southwest border.

History

Lindbergh – Morosgo was once home to Mooney’s lake that was developed into a recreation center in the 1920s. Locals came to cool off with a swim, a horseback ride through the grounds or a relaxing picnic on the lawns. The on-site pavilion eventually burned down, and a few years later, the lake was drained by eager developers.

By the 1960s, the area featured dozens of retail stores and landed on the map for music lovers. BB King, the Sex Pistols and other musical giants played at the now-closed Great Southeast Music Hall. Today, the area has grown into an epicenter for retail, office space and residences with mixed-use space.
