The Historian For Hire blog has put up a nice short history of the Parkwood neighborhood, which sits partially in unincorporated DeKalb and partially inside the Decatur city limits. Learn about its Druid Hills roots (similar to Ponce de Leon Heights), its acquisition by Emory University, the evolution of the neighborhood’s housing stock, and the development of the Parkwood Community.
Great stuff! We look forward to H4H’s next post on the neighborhood, entitled “Preserving Parkwood”!
