Thornton Kennedy shared stories ripped from the headlines of his Northside Neighbor column to weave together a history of Buckhead. Sensational, gripping, and unusual, these true stories exposed defining moments in the community’s evolution. “Buckhead could have been Terminus” and “Fire allowed city to annex Buckhead” are just a couple of the headlines Kennedy reflected upon.
