Druid Hills was one of the first neighborhoods in Atlanta and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The community was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, the designer of Central Park and the Biltmore Estate. The neighborhood is one of the most affluent in Atlanta with homes constructed in the early 1900s with architectural styles like Georgian, Tudor, Jacobean and Italian Renaissance as well as early 20th Century Victorian mansions and bungalows.
Druid Hills is a close to the acclaimed Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). It is also just around the corner from Emory Point and Emory Village, quaint areas filled with an eclectic variety of shops and cafes. The neighborhood is home to the international Atlanta Boy Choir, a renowned choral group of boys and men. Druid Hills is also home to the mansion in the famous film, Driving Miss Daisy.
