Description 

The Atlanta City Hall was designed by a prominent local architect, G. Lloyd Preacher. The materials used on the exterior and parts of the interior, marble, granite, brick and terra cotta were all Georgia products. Although several were planned, there are no major structures in the city with such elaborate set-backs. The Depression halted construction of other structures of this type, making the design unique in this city. According to a 1929 article, this "towering structure" was a "symbol of Atlanta's growth as a metropolitan center." -- Historic American Buildings Survey
