History of the Atlanta Labor Temple

The Atlanta Labor Temple Association was founded in 1910 by a group of unions and individuals to provide office and meeting space for Atlanta's labor community. It occupied a building at 112 Trinity Street, and in 1916 constructed a new facility on that site. In 1930, the Association moved to 91 Trinity Street, in 1951 to 345 Washington Street, and in 1958 to 250 10th Street, the last building it owned.
