College Campus Movie Location
Century-Old Campus and Architecture Conveniently Located Six Miles East of Atlanta
Widely recognized for its unique beauty, the Agnes Scott campus is located six miles east of Atlanta in historic Decatur. The college's 100-acre wooded grounds harbor century-old Gothic and Victorian architecture. The interiors of the older buildings have been maintained close to the period in which they were built.
According to an article in Location Update, the buildings on Agnes Scott's campus are the "most stereotypically 'academic-looking' [ones] south of the Ivy League."
