Administrative/Biographical History

In 1901 Mary Jane Peters (1830-1911) donated land at the corner of West Peachtree Street and North Avenue to the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia, on which they founded the All Saints Episcopal Church. It became the third Episcopal parish in Atlanta and had the address 634 West Peachtree Street NW. The original wood and stucco chapel was designed by Henrietta Dozier (1877-1950), but it was torn down to create space for a new church building. Architects Thomas H. Morgan (1857-1940) and John R. Dillon (?-1948) designed the second building, which was officially dedicated in 1906. The church became particularly well known for its stained glass windows, six of which were created by Tiffany Studios. The parish grew to over 3,000 members and the expanded campus to include the 1906 church building; a chapel, renovated in 1994; a 1917 building named Egleston Hall; a parish house, built in 1956; Tate Hall, acquired in 1985; and the Harry and Allison Pritchett Children's Center.
