Druid Hills was developed during the late 19th and early 20th centuries by Joel Hurt, the developer of Inman Par, Atlanta's first suburb. In his quest for the "perfect suburb," Hurt employed the talents of Frederick Law Olmsted, the founder of landscape architecture and designer of landscapes for Inman Park, the U.S. Capitol, Central Park in New York City and the Biltmore Estate in Ashville, N.C. Hurt was also assisted by Asa Candler, the founder of the Coca-Cola Co.
Located about five miles east of Atlanta's downtown, Druid Hills has been the address of many notable Atlanta residents. The neighborhood has four National Register districts: Druid Hills, Cameron Court, Emory Grove and University Park-Emory-Highlands-Emory Estates. Home styles include Georgian, Tudor, Jacobean, and Italian Renaissance as well as early 20th Century Victorian mansions and small bungalows.
This year come celebrate the 50th Annual Druid Hills Tour of Homes in April to witness this amazing community and the people involved.
