Emory Grove Neighborhood
Emory Grove - One of the most popular Emory area neighborhoods located off North Decatur Road near the intersection of Clairmont Road. This charming area is comprised of approximately 100 cottages built in the late 1930's and 1940's to house university faculty and staff who could walk to the campus a few blocks away.
Princeton Way was first known as Emory Grove Unit #1 and the area was promoted and built by L. Neal Smith, who had his offices on North Decatur Road. The street was unpaved and seemed like it was way out in the country at the time. In fact, there was a cow pasture on each side of the road at the intersection of North Decatur and Clairmont road. See Original Sales Information.
Emory Grove was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. Today, Princeton Way, Westminster Way, and Edinburgh Terrace, which comprise Emory Grove, is a thriving community of young families with children, singles and retired individuals, and is still an easy walk to Emory
Neighborhood Parks - Emory Grove has the distinction of containing three parks (one with tennis courts), which are utilized for birthday parties, potluck dinners and get-togethers within the neighborhood.
