The classical three-storied building served as Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company’s switchboard. The building features a brick facade and simple detailing; it is often noted for its large windows on the street level. A 1922 addition housed the matching switching technology that brought with it a true dial tone. More information on the building and the proposed plans comes from the Creative Loafing article available here.
There is now a petition asking that the building be preserved. We would appreciate your support in signing this petition.
