Piedmont Heights Walking Tour

Gold Tooth John Historical Marker

1944 Piedmont Circle NE

This historical marker commemorates Gold Tooth John, the handyman for the Edwin Plaster family. Edwin’s father, Benjamin, and his family were some of the area’s first settlers in 1822. Gold Tooth John built these steps, this site’s only remaining relic of the Plaster home and defensive entrenchments from the Battle of Atlanta during the Civil War. The marker is on the site of a former Holiday Inn Hotel, more recently the former Intown Suites. Supposedly, the site will be redeveloped—more details as soon as we have them!
