Freight Room

Freight RoomThe Georgia Railroad Freight Depot was completed in April of 1869 and is one of the oldest buildings in downtown Atlanta. The building served as the main freight depot for the Georgia Railroad and was restored by the Georgia Building Authority in 1981 for public use. Most of the original brickwork and freight bays remain in place to give the facility a unique setting for special occasions. The Freight Room can accommodate 800 guests for a seated event and 1300 for a stand-up reception. The Freight Room is an ideal location for large award ceremonies, wedding receptions, lunch and dinner events, trade shows, or fundraisers with sufficient room for a DJ, band or other entertainment. You are only limited by your own imagination.
