What's the deal with the butterfly?

You may have noticed our lovely Inman Park logo (a registered trademark of the Inman Park Neighborhood Association) and wondered why we chose a butterfly to represent our neighborhood. Here's the creative vision behind it:

Look closely and in the wings of our butterfly, you can see two faces. One symbolizes looking to the past and the beauty of the youthful years of Inman Park and the other looks ahead to the future of our blossoming neighborhood. 

The Inman Park butterfly logo was created by resident Ken Thompson in 1970. At the time, the "restoration pioneers" who were updating homes needed a unifying symbol of their spirit that reflected both past and future. The butterfly has always been the quintessential symbol of beautiful transformation, and a fitting symbol for the continuing evolution of the Inman Park neighborhood.
