States: Georgia: DeKalb
Was the house that you speak of right at the intersection or was it perhaps east of Memorial Dr. on the right side of Covington Highway near the Midway Road intersection? If you are speaking of the big two story house on the right going towards Avondale Estates and after you cross over Memorial Drive, the Smith Family lived there. According to my mother, she went to Avondale High School with Martha Smith who was one of the Smith children. That house is now gone and it is the new home of the Department of Juvenile Justice for Dekalb CO, GA. Years ago, before all of the changes on Covington Highway (and Memorial Drive) Covington Highway had a curve in it there and the driveway to the house led in on the right side of it. This is according to my mother and grandmother. In my lifetime (that I can remember) the drive led in off of the Covington Highway. There was a large Mock Orange tree growing at the entrance to the driveway. I think that there were columns of each side of the driveway.
