The Loring Heights neighborhood in Atlanta gets its name from Brigadier-General William Wing Loring of the Provisional Army of the Confederate States. An historic marker of "Loring's Hill" (shown right) is located in the neighborhood on Trabert Avenue.
The neighborhood was originally two separate subdivisions; Lynhurst Acres to the south of Deering Road and Loring Heights to the north of Deering Road. Now, they are combined as a single neighborhood according to the Atlanta NPU. Loring Heights was established in 1940, however, there are several recent renovations and new-construction homes as well.
