EMORY/DRUID HILLS – the development of this beautiful residential area was begun in 1890 by Joel Hurt, who from 1890 - 1893 acquired 1492 acres of land northeast of Atlanta for the project. Hurt commissioned the founder of landscape architecture himself, Frederick Law Olmsted, to design and plan Druid Hills. The depression of 1893 delayed development and it was not until 1905 that Olmsted’s firm completed the final plans. Development of Druid Hills was completed between 1910 and 1935, and the area emerged as the most successful affluent residential community in Atlanta.
Druid Hills with Olmsted’s plan of a gently curving main avenue intersected by parkways running alongside wooded parks, continues to maintain its genteel lifestyle today. The area is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Emory homes for sale and Druid Hills homes for sale can be found in a range of styles, but are mostly stately two-story traditional Tudor and Georgian designs and most are priced between $900,000 to $2.5 million. Some townhomes are available for $375,000 and up. Prices in these areas have steadily escalated, because of their close proximity to the Emory University research center and to downtown Atlanta. The most famous Druid Hills home is Callanwolde, built in 1920 for the son of Asa Candler, founder of Coca-Cola and now a fine arts center. Other mansions are located throughout the area, but one of the most well recognized is the house used for the filming of "Driving Miss Daisy".
