Druid Hills / Emory
About the Neighborhood
EMORY-DRUID HILLS was one of Atlanta’s first and finest suburbs, famous at the time for its innovation in suburban design and now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Designed by Frederick Law Olmstead in the 1800s, known for his design of New York’s Central Park and the grand Biltmore Estates in Asheville, NC, the deliberate streetscapes and beautiful open spaces of the neighborhood were home to Atlanta’s elite, including Asa Candler, the founder of Coca Coca-Cola.
Druid Hills is also well-rooted in the world of research and academia, thanks to the prestigious Emory University and affiliate institutions like the CDC and the American Cancer Society nearby.
Today, some of Atlanta’s finest real estate is located in this community. Historic and elegant, you will find wide tree-lined streets of large, upscale homes and a quiet, respectable atmosphere. Upscale homebuyers will be delighted with the opulence and history found in this neighborhood, as well as the close proximity to the vibrant arts and entertainment the city offers.
