Emory Grove - One of the most popular Emory area neighborhoods, located off North Decatur Road near the intersection of Clairmont Road.
Emory Grove contains approximately 100 cottage-style bungalows, built in the late 1930's and 1940's to house Emory University faculty and staff who could walk to the campus a few blocks away. The Price Range today for renovated properties in Emory Grove runs between $450,000 - $650,000.
Princeton Way was first known as Emory Grove Unit #1, promoted and built by L. Neal Smith, who had his offices on North Decatur Road. The street was unpaved and seemed remote and 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. Westminster Way and Edinburgh Terrace were developed as Emory Grove Unit #1.
Emory Grove was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. Today, Princeton Way, Westminster Way, and Edinburgh Terrace, is a thriving community of young families with children, singles and retired individuals, and continues to be an attractive neighborhood for those who work at Emory University, the Center for Disease Control, or the Emory Medical Center on Clifton Road.
One of the unusual features of Emory Grove are the integrated park and playground areas that were set aside when it was developed. Although it is mostly maintained by the homeowners, they are considered part of the DeKalb County Park System.
It is within walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants, shops and the YMCA on Clairmont Road - Emory Grove is one of the most desireable neighborhoods near Emory
