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. In 1929, the City of Atlanta purchased the landing field belonging to Asa G. Candler Jr. and founded its municipal airport, now known as the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Many global businesses have made their corporate headquarters in Hapeville including Delta Air Lines and Porsche North America located at the site of the old Ford Assembly Plant.
Hapeville is quickly becoming the hidden gem for those seeking a historic neighborhood convenient to downtown Atlanta.
