History

In the mid-1950s, three sibling developers (Jack, James and Neal Embry, for whom the neighborhood is named) purchased 600 acres of farmland west of what is now I-85. Starting in 1957, the Embrys built the 700-800 homes in the neighborhood. They also built several apartment complexes on the acreage. The Embry Hills Club was built in 1958. The land was bisected by I-285 in the 1960s. In 1963, the first phase of the Embry Hills retail district was built. The Embry National Bank (now United Community Bank) soon followed. DeKalb County Public Library recently constructed the new Embry Hills Library, replacing the neighborhood branch that opened in 1990.

Transportation

Public transportation is available at the Doraville MARTA station. Interstate access from I-85 and I-285 is through the Pleasantdale Road and Chamblee Tucker Road exits, respectively. Surface street access is through Chamblee Tucker and Henderson Mill Roads.
