"Short on personality and public education"

Campbellton Road is a prolific thoroughfare that runs parallel to Route 166. If you ever wondered it act stretches from the edge of Douglasville (and eventually Carrollton), Georgia for almost 25 miles or more all the way to East Point and South Atlanta. Along the way the communities around Campbellton change character with each passing mile. As it leaves the more rural and suburban areas of Douglasville and west Atlanta, the road becomes increasingly urban and dingy as it travels eastward. It is decidedly residential to the far west and far east and primarily commercial and older retail in the middle.

Campbellton Road can be a good investment for new homeowners. Single family homes along the east side of Campbellton are generally older, built approximately in the late 1970’s to 1990’s for a middle-class residential base. The housing costs in the area are quite affordable. The housing costs and the availability of public parks make the area attractive to young families. However, the schools on the eastside of Campbellton are currently disappointing examples of Fulton County and City of Atlanta School Systems. According to some parents I know, they continue to struggle with standardized tests score and teacher retention.

Good restaurants and shopping is found only in the nearby Greenbriar and Camp Creek Marketplace centers.

Campbellton is short on personality, but big on possibilities.
