Hapeville is a city in Fulton County, Georgia, located directly adjacent to the city of Atlanta. The population was 6,373 at the 2010 census. It is named for Dr. Samuel Hape, one of the area’s original landowners and its first mayor.

During the 1950s and 1960s, Hapeville was a thriving part of the Tri-City (Hapeville, East Point, College Park) area and its post-WWII population supported three elementary schools (Josephine Wells, North Avenue, and College Street) and one high school. During the 40 years following, it became regarded as a somewhat depressed industrial area. Since 2005, Hapeville has seen significant gentrification, beginning with the Virginia Park neighborhood and then spreading throughout the city. Hapeville has been discovered by young professionals seeking historic neighborhoods close to downtown Atlanta, and there has been a great deal of new residential construction, including single-family homes, townhomes, and upscale apartments. This new residential development has led to a revived historic downtown. Hapeville has also been discovered by metro Atlanta’s arts community, and the beginnings of an artist colony have taken shape with the formation of the Hapeville Arts Alliance. The Hapeville Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Since 1947, Hapeville was home to the Ford Atlanta Assembly Plant, recently making the Taurus. It closed in 2006. There are development plans to open a multi-use development, Aerotropolis Atlanta, on the site, which is immediately adjacent to Atlanta Airport. Currently, Porsche North America is building its North America Headquarters on the Ford site.

Hapeville is also home to the Dwarf House – the first Chick-fil-A restaurant.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 2.4 square miles, all land.

Here is a little more information from the official Hapeville city website

On January 8, 1821, the Creek Nation Indians ceded a large tract of land to the white man that included the present Hapeville area. In 1853 that land was incorporated into Fulton County.

Hapeville grew out of individual farm settlements owned by the Thrailkill, Cash, Mangum, Sims and Hape families. In 1871, Dr. Samuel Hape and other investors purchased 500 acres of wooded land on the Macon and Western Central Georgia Railroad, eight miles south of Atlanta. The Village of Hapeville was chartered on September 16, 1891 by Dr. Samuel Hape, Hapeville’s first Mayor. Dr. Hape was a native of Middlebury, Maryland who came to Atlanta prior to the Civil War.

The most significant impact on Hapeville’s future occurred when Asa G. Candler, Jr. allowed the center of his oval race track to be used as a landing field for aircraft. The City of Atlanta purchased this area in 1929 and founded its municipal airport, which eventually became the world’s busiest known as Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Hapeville is also home to Delta Air Lines, Inc. Corporate Headquarters.

The December 1947 opening of the Ford Assembly Plant marked another major impact on Hapeville’s economy as did the 1960 opening of the Airport Hilton, linking Hapeville to the international chain of hotels.
