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, now an Intown Suites, which will soon be undergoing a complete makeover thanks to Atlanta developer Perennial Properties
in collaboration with Austin-based Bunkhouse!
