The planned community was initially conceived by Joel Hurt, and developed with the effort of Atlanta’s leading families, including Coca-Cola founder Asa Candler. It contains some of Atlanta’s historic mansions from the late 19th and early 20th century. The neighborhood includes the main campus of Emory University, which relocated to Atlanta in 1914.
The neighborhood contains the main campus of Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). A third of Atlanta jobs are through the Emory system.
The entire area was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and was one of his last commissions. A showpiece of the design was the string of parks along Ponce de Leon Avenue, which was designated as parks and parkways and listed on the National Register of Historic Places on April 11, 1975. The remainder of the development was listed on the Register as the Historic District on October 25, 1979. Later the Park and Parkways district was consolidated into the Historic District. The other historic districts are:
- Emory University District, added in 1975
- University Park-Emory Highlands-Emory Estates Historic District, added in 1998
- Emory Grove Historic District, added in 2000.
Druid Hills is home to The Atlanta Boy Choir on S. Ponce de Leon Ave. and Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, housed in the Gothic-Tudor style former estate of Charles Howard Candler, president of Coca-Cola and eldest son of Asa Griggs Candler, Coca-Cola’s co-founder.
In conclusion, showcasing historic culture, education, and a national research facility, the neighborhood is a one-of-a-kind. Joining the community is the most layered and specialized corners of Atlanta.
