My family has lived in the Druid Hills neighborhood since 1949 and I'm the 4th generation to call Druid Hills home. When asked in 2006 to volunteer on the Druid Hills Tour of Homes & Gardens committee, I didn't hesitate to participate. Now, as a long-time sponsor of the tour, the journey has been full of meeting new friends, getting to know my community better, and improving our neighborhood.
This year marks the 50th year of the Druid Hills Tour and the 80th Anniversary of the Druid Hills Civic Association (DHCA). There are 6 homes and 6 gardens on the tour, the premier of "Druid Hills: History Happens Here" documentary, and a chance to walk through two historic homes that are part of the Springdale Park Elementary School (SPARK) - one of the SPARK homes was owned by my great-grandmother after moving from what is now midtown.
Please join me in exploring the beautiful Druid Hills neighborhood April 20-22. To learn more about the tour, you can go to the tour website: http://druidhillstour.org/
