Neel Reid was a prominent architect in Atlanta in the early 20th century. According to family legend, Reid’s career in architecture began when he took a strong interest in his family home, which was being remodeled by an architect in Macon. His ideas so impressed the architect that he was offered a job. He went on to study architecture at Columbia University and the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris where he studied classic and Renaissance architecture.

 

As a creative, gifted, and intuitive architect, Reid experimented with various styles in designing homes. Working before air conditioning, his designs always included porches as integral parts of the home. Reid also liked to emphasize entrance doorways, entrance halls, and stair hallways by giving them greater dimensions. In his larger homes, the open staircases are often the dramatic element. In his smaller houses, Reid created a sense of presence through the use of a variety of interesting elements or space such as partly open levels, unique chimneys, or oversized columns to achieve the effect he wanted. A number of his works are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
