The community of Buckhead dates to the mid-1800s when Henry Irby bought more than 200 acres of land in the area. The name of the community is attributed to a large deer killed by Irby. Later in the century, the area was well-known for its appeal to wealthy Atlanta residents as a vacation spot. Much of the development continued to be dominated by wealthy individuals who built mansions in the area in the 1900s. Although an effort was made to avoid annexation, the area became a part of Atlanta in 1952.
Today, the district of Buckhead comprises approximately one-fifth of Atlanta, located in the northern section of the city.

The district is known for its extreme wealth with one of its ZIP codes ranked as the second wealthiest in the South. The average household income is approximately $280,631.
