Goins Studio and then boarded a bus for a tour that wound through Peachtree Heights West, Haynes Manor, and Tuxedo Park, highlighting the remarkable architecture from 1910 to 1935 that characterizes Buckhead’s finest neighborhoods.  Wright Marshall, President of Revival Construction and Executive Board Member of the ICAA, and Jonathan Wills LaCrosse, designer at D.
