Hidden Georgia Tech: Heffernan House

By Victor Rogers June 8, 2015

Across the Georgia Tech campus, hidden spaces and forgotten places await rediscovery. Some are relics of an earlier time, difficult to find and explore. Others are very much in view, but often overlooked. Hidden Georgia Tech is a photo essay series highlighting places on campus that largely go unnoticed, but are hidden in plain sight.


Built in 1927 at 166 Fifth Street, the P.M. Heffernan House is nestled among the fraternity houses between Techwood and Fowler. Paul M. Heffernan, professor and head of the former School of Architecture from 1956-76, purchased the house in 1946 and lived there for many years during his 38-year career with Tech. Tour this unique house through the images below.
