2024 Tour Homes &Gardens

The Historic Druid Hills Home & Garden Tour is back and better than ever!


Our unique neighborhood, designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, was almost erased by the construction of a highway. Instead, the community fought fiercely to preserve and protect Druid Hills.
 

Even as it has evolved with the needs of today’s world, we are grateful that the spirit and soul of Olmsted’s original vision for our neighborhood are still thriving. This year’s Tour showcases 10 stunning examples of true Druid Hills stewardship, through clever adaptive reuse of original estate homes, meticulous restoration, and thoughtful realization of our neighborhood’s historic preservation guidelines in new construction. 

We can’t wait to open the doors and garden gates for you!

EYES ON THE CREEK INITIATIVE

Did you know that Druid Hills is on the southern edge of the Peachtree Creek watershed? Peavine Creek, and its tributary Lullwater Creek, are the southernmost tributaries to the Peachtree. This makes the creeks that flow through our backyards and parks not just a treasure for us, but a crucial part of the larger Peachtree and Chattahoochee ecosystem. 

Eyes on the Creek is a partnership with Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, South Fork Conservancy, Friends of Peavine Trail, and Friends of Burbanck Park. They will collect water samples biweekly from 3 to 4 locations throughout the neighborhood. Samples will be tested for biologic contamination and Druid Hills residents will be able to monitor results. Planned monitoring sites with at least one volunteer are marked with blue binoculars. A possible 4th site on Lullwater Creek is marked with a “?”. We invite all neighborhood residents to get involved as volunteers. Know of another possible site? Want to sign up to help? 

 

And, to spice things up, we encourage you to also join the Atlanta Creek League for some friendly competition — earn points for creek care and enjoyment, from skipping rocks (1 pt) to water testing (60 pts). Check out the map to find out if you’re in the Lullwater Creek or Peavine Creek team catchment area. A one-time $30 joining fee gets you a team jersey, and proceeds benefit South Fork Conservancy's efforts to care for creeks here in the neighborhood. This is a great way to get involved in caring for the creeks right here in Druid Hills. Lots of activities can earn points, including some great educational ones for kids. We all know Druid Hills is the best neighborhood in Atlanta; let's knock it out of the park!
