Oliver House is a “Williamsburg Style” building with seventy-two (72) one-bedroom and eight (8) two-bedroom apartments that are designated for seniors.

Oliver House is the second phase of the revitalization of Allen Wilson Terrace, a former 200 unit public housing community originally built in 1941.    The site is within two blocks of Decatur’s thriving downtown government, business, and retail district including the Decatur MARTA Rail Station.  DHA engaged in a unique revitalization planning process that was designed to retain the residents in the area while constructing the new housing.   Many families were able to move directly into the new Oliver House, named for a distinguished African American businessman, Henry Oliver, who lived in this area in the 1800s. The Allen Wilson community and Oliver House are participating in Southface Energy Institute’s EarthCraft Communities™ and  EarthCraft  House  Multifamily™ programs.
