Virtual Walking Tour – Leila Ross Wilburn and the MAK Historic District


Virtual Wilburn Walking Tour!

Leila Ross Wilburn, b. 1885, attended Agnes Scott Institute, and lived in the MAK (McDonough Street, Adams Street, and Kings Highway) neighborhood of Decatur her entire adult life. She became the second registered female architect in Georgia and went on to create hundreds of house plans, institutional buildings and residences. Leila Ross Wilburn’s designs are featured all over Atlanta and Decatur, but the epicenter is the MAK neighborhood. In this tour, we will focus on the MAK district, which features several of her early home designs. We will discuss her designs in detail and what makes them unique. We will also discuss Wilburn as a female architect, what that meant and how it influenced her design choices.

This tour will be just like the walking tour, except without the walking.
