If you plan to be in Atlanta the weekend of May 1-3, don’t miss the 2015 Druid Hills Tour of Homes & Gardens and Artist Market, celebrating its 47th year. The theme of this year’s tour is “History Happens Here.” The neighborhood contains historic homes from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, as well as the main campus of Emory University. Notable landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted was commissioned to design the communities’ original grounds, which have been preserved and extended as the neighborhood has grown. Featuring architecture from the renowned firm Ivey & Crook and interiors by some of the region’s most notable designers, this tour is sure to inspire.
In addition to five houses, one garden, and a plant sale, this year’s tour offers free events open to the public at Emory Village, including an artists market, nightly musical entertainment, lectures, guided tours, and a fun run/tot trot.

Proceeds from the tour and events benefit the Druid Hills neighborhood, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.
