Asbury Circle

Campus: Druid Hills in Atlanta

Namesake: Francis Asbury

Purpose: Campus road

Asbury Circle honors the first Methodist bishop in America, Francis Asbury, for whom a number of colleges and churches also are named.

Originally a semicircle running from Clifton Road at what is now Fishburne Drive and ending where Eagle Row now meets Clifton Road near the Robert W. Woodruff Health Sciences Center Administration Building, this street has been shortened and is no longer circular.

There is also an Asbury Street on the Oxford College campus in Oxford.
