Home to some of the largest estates in Atlanta, Druid Hills has a robust history as one of Atlanta’s most affluent Intown neighborhoods. From as far back as 1900, the area was chosen by many of the city’s wealthiest citizens and leading families as the perfect location to call home. Their sweeping estates set amongst lavish landscaping and surrounding parks were examples of the period’s notable architecture and vision. Druid Hills still remains home to these impressive houses and neighborhoods, but over the years it has grown to include more moderate homes and has developed into so much more.
Today, Druid Hills is the location of one of Atlanta’s most significant employers, college graduates, and medical research facilities, Emory Hospital, Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control. Its’ many attractions include, Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, the Fernback Museum of Natural History, the Druid Hills Golf Club, The Atlanta Boys’ Choir, the newly revitalized Emory Village and so much more. And, it is home to an impressive selection of outdoor parks including Freedom Park, Baker Woodland Park, Burbanck Park, Fernbank Forest, Hahn Woods, Medlock Park, Wesley Woods Forest and Olmsted Linear Park which consists of six distinct parks that run along Ponce de Leon Avenue. Nearby, the PATH Atlanta-Stone Mountain Trail, provides access to an eighteen-mile bike trail which begins at the Georgia Tech Campus (Fifth St.) and runs all the way to Stone Mountain Park
The homes in Druid Hills are an eclectic mix of various sized homes and architectural styles including revivalist, Georgian, Tudor, Jacobean, Italian Renaissance and even the ranch style homes of the early 50’s. They range from the larger mansions build in the early 1900’s to single family homes and bungalows built between 1940 and 1999.
