Meander through some of the finest homes and gardens in Atlanta’s Historic Druid Hills neighborhood

 

As the longest running home tour in Atlanta, the Druid Hills Home & Garden Tour has showcased many stunning homes over the years. This year’s promises to be better than ever starting with 822 Lullwater Rd, a gorgeous brick and limestone Tudor featured in the Academy Award winning film “Driving Miss Daisy.” Then from a show-stopping French Manor Revival designed by Neel Reid, built in 1916 for the heir to the Rich’s Department store fortune, to a miraculous renovation/resurrection of a magnificent two story Classical Revival that sat abandoned for a number of years and has recently been lovingly restored to its former glory by its current owners – every home on our tour has a story.

 

Did you know … Olmsted Linear Park and the Historic Druid Hills neighborhood were Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr.’s last designs before he died? April 26, 2022 will be this remarkable landscape visionary’s 200th birthday so special events will be happening all over the country to mark his bicentennial, part of a coordinated national celebration, Olmsted 200! Our tour is just one of the many events that will be taking place in Atlanta.

All twelve of the amazing homes on this year’s tour are all situated on streets that can be seen on Olmsted’s original plan for Druid Hills, all close to Olmsted Linear Park. Tour attendees are encouraged to stroll through the park to walk from house to house.

Let’s Celebrate, Atlanta!
