The life of the Southern Railway buildings

by The 100 Companies

At one time, railway traffic boomed through our city. For 92 years, one of the railroad’s biggest players, Southern Railway, later known as Norfolk Southern, maintained offices along the main Atlanta to Macon rail lines. Built in 1912, the buildings sit at Spring and Nelson Streets, an area now known as The Gulch.

In 2005, employees were moved to a new Midtown office and the buildings have since been used for various film and television productions, including “The Walking Dead.” In 2018, the historic building began a lengthy renovation process to eventually become home to several retailers, offices and apartments.
