Druid Hills Historic District

With the destruction of the Civil War and the transformation of the Peachtree Road Corridor from residential to commercial, the existence of old south residences in Atlanta has all but disappeared. However, the Druid Hills area contains a plethora of historical homes from the early 1900’s.

The National Park Service maintains that this area is rich in examples of period architecture. The area became a canvas for famed urban planner Frederick Law Olmsted and the area became a retreat for Atlanta’s political, professional and commercial families.

Olmsted was pursued by Joel Hurt, an Atlanta developer interested in capitalizing on the expanding Atlanta housing market around 1900 to create livable suburbs. With the advent of commuter rail and the automobile, well to do shakers and movers looked to Hurt for more bucolic housing scenarios.

With his partnership with Olmsted, Hurt brought in the designer best known at that time for planning Prospect Heights in Brooklyn, the Capitol grounds in Washington DC and for his role in designing Washington Park in Chicago. Olmsted’s vision is observed on Ponce de Leon east of Highland running through the Fernbank museum area and bordering the Emory University district.

Olmsted foresaw a divided boulevard for Ponce de Leon with park space in the median. Still a prosperous and bustling center for Dekalb County, it is also bordered to the east by the county seat, Decatur Georgia. A rolling landscape with lush greenery and an international influence, it remains a mostly residential area that also boasts the Druid Hills Golf Club and near by East Lake Golf Club where the 2013 Tour Championship runs from September 19 through 22, sponsored by Coca-Cola.

Atlanta Moving Vans

Moving vans and regular delivery trucks are outfitted differently based on their intended purposes and the types of goods they are designed to transport. Here are some general differences:

  1. Doors: Moving vans have swinging doors. Swinging doors allow moving companies to load household goods more efficiently and completely.
  2. Size: Moving vans are typically larger than delivery trucks, as they need to be able to accommodate furniture, appliances, and other large items. Delivery trucks are usually smaller and more compact, designed to transport smaller packages and parcels.
  3. Interior design: Moving vans often have a large, open cargo area with tie-downs or straps to secure large items during transit. They may also have ramps or lift gates to make it easier to load and unload heavy items. Delivery trucks, on the other hand, may have shelves, compartments, or sliding doors to organize and access smaller packages.
  4. Climate control: Moving vans may have climate-controlled cargo areas to protect furniture and other sensitive items from extreme temperatures or humidity. Delivery trucks may have climate control systems in the cab, but typically do not have specialized cargo area temperature control.
  5. Durability: Moving vans are designed to withstand the wear and tear of multiple moves and heavy items. They often have reinforced floors, walls, and ceilings to support the weight of furniture and appliances. Delivery trucks are typically built to handle frequent stops and starts, but may not be as robust as moving vans.

Overall, moving vans are outfitted with features that make them better suited for transporting large, heavy, and sometimes delicate items over longer distances, while delivery trucks are designed for more frequent stops and shorter distances, carrying smaller packages and parcels.
