Notes
Survey number HAER GA-21
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-21).
Building/structure dates: 1902 initial construction
Significance: In 1902 the Seaboard Airline Railway built this freight terminal to serve the industries and businesses along Front Avenue. The building continued to function in that capacity until 1971. Since that time it has been used as a warehouse. The W.B. Bradley Company purchased the building within the last two years. On August 10, 1977 the building burned, but its brick walls and piers still remain, and the company plans to renovate this structure to make it a part of the convention center and hotel complex proposed for this portion of Front Avenue.
