Below is the Cator Woolford
mansion, located at 1815 South Ponce de Leon Avenue. Woolford was one of the
founders of the company that today is known as Equifax.
In 1951, seven years after Woolford's death, his home became a
treatment center for children suffering from cerebral palsy,
the first child rehabilitation center in the South according
to noted Atlanta historian Franklin Garrett. Later the
home was leased to the Atlanta Hospitality Center and used to
provide lodging and meals to families and friends visiting
patients in Atlanta hospitals from out of town.
It's still serving in that role and today it's officially
known as the Atlanta Hospital
Adjacent to the house on the
same property is an event space known as the Cator
Woolford Gardens at the Frazer Center.
