Hardy Pace
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 10, 1785
Anson County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Dec. 5, 1864
Cobb County
Georgia, USA

Hardy is the son of Stephen Pace and Catherine Gatwood Buchanan. He came to the Vinings area from North Carolina and began to operate a ferry business across the Chattahoochie. The ferries were flat-bottom boats large enough to carry a horse and wagon. So profitable was his business that Pace was said to own 10,000 acres of land between Atlanta, Buckhead and Smynra-the Vinings area. He raised five children in the area, died on Dec. 5,1884 and is buried in a little family cemetery atop Vinings Mountain. To this day the road to Vinings is called Paces Ferry Road.

In the late 1830s, the The Western & Atlantic Railroad laid a track through the area and built a small depot. The villiage was first called Paces and then Crossroads. In 1904 the name was changed to Vinings in honor of an engineer who helped lay the track.
