The famous cartoon strip, Mark Trail, was written by long time Sandy Spring’s native Ed Dodd. Ed Dodd was a big proponent of the natural environment. Dodd’s Lost Forest, the fictional home of Mark Trail, was patterned off the 130 acre tract of land on Marsh Creek in north Sandy Springs. He purchased the land from the Brandon family in the 1950s. Dodd built a beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright designed home overlooking the creek. The home site is located in the Brandon Mill area of Sandy Springs. This area is just west of Roswell Road off Dalrymple Road. The following site has some great information about Ed Dodd and Mark Trail.

  1. I see the comment about Ed Dodd building “a beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright designed home.” There is NO record of this in the archives of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. So, what proof have you of this assertion?
