To celebrate Emory's 175th anniversary, Emory Report brings you a look at little-known facts about the university.

The Candler Mansion on Emory's Briarcliff campus is a beautiful yet eerie estate. Built in 1920 by Asa "Buddy" Candler, Jr., the second son of the founder of Coca-Cola, the 42 acre property once housed wild animals including four elephants: Coca, Cola, Refreshing and Delicious. In the 1960s, the mansion was turned into a mental health institute. Today, the house is boarded up, too expensive to renovate, but is still useful as a place to shoot scary movies and TV shows.
