De Rossett Depot

The first Druid Hills Golf Pro Shop was constructed from the old DeRossett depot that had been hauled the 30 some miles down US 70 to make a unique, if not completely adequate, pro shop. Upon completion of the new facility in 1981, the depot was moved to 1356 Fire Tower Road where it became a residential home. The home is located on the right-hand side of the road 1.3 miles from Peavine Road.

At the time, Betty Davey was awarded the only remaining memento, the DeRossett sign. The sign has been recently (in March 2015) spotted attached to the carport at 403 Lakeview Drive.
