This beautiful house was built in 1923 for Isaac S. Hopkins, an Atlanta attorney, and the architect was Owen James Southwell, who with Henry Hornbostel designed many of the buildings on the Emory campus. It is located in one of the prettiest areas of Atlanta and interestingly, the marble columns, cast iron and some other architectural features were salvaged from the John James house, which served as the Governor's mansion from 1873-1920. The John James house was torn down in 1923 to make way for the Henry Grady hotel and is currently the site of the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel.
