Historical note:

The land on which Piedmont Hospital now stands once was known as "Deerland Park." The Atlanta Urban Design Commission describes it in its Brookwood Hills District: "The area on both sides of Peachtree Road ... was known as 'Deerland Park' in the 1890s, and this name was used by the grandparents of prominent Atlantan Jack Spalding, founder of the King & Spalding law firm, for their 11-acre estate on the site of Piedmont Hospital. ... In a reminiscence for a history of the hospital, Spalding remembered 'Deerlands' and the Brookwood area as very rural in the 1920s. His grandparents maintained a barn, a one-acre garden, chickens and other farm animals on their land into the 1940s. When the family traveled in the 1920s, their luggage was taken to Brookwood Station in a mule-drawn wagon." The Spalding family sold  Deerland Park and its Victorian gothic home at 2002 Peachtree Road for construction of Piedmont Hospital in 1943 and ground was broken in 1954.
