Atlanta is full of influential architecture, one being the Healey Building. Completed in 1914, the 16-story building was created near the end of the city’s first skyscraper era by architects Morgan and Dillon with Walter T. Downing.
The building was created by Thomas Healey’s grandson, William Healey. Thomas was a Connecticut-born man who moved to Georgia in 1846 and eventually became active in politics and other endeavors, including real estate development. After his grandfather’s death in 1897, William took over many projects, including the Healey Building.
In 1977, the Healey Building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
