Welcome to Druid Hills
With its beautiful linear park and parkways designed at the turn of the 20th century by Frederick Law Olmsted, the Druid Hills Historic District
richly deserves its designation on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, it resides remarkably near the center of Atlanta’s sprawling metropolitan area.
Some find it hard to believe that this magnificent urban neighborhood was conceived and executed as one of Atlanta’s first suburbs. Yet it continues to evoke the past with its winding roads, eclectic architecture, and green canopy. The U.S. Department of the Interior once declared Druid Hills to be “significant as the finest example of late 19th and early 20th century comprehensive planning and development in the Atlanta area, and one of the finest period suburbs in the Southeast.”
