History

Building originally housed Mueller Co., a plumbing supplier; other occupants have been Atlanta Service Warehouse (suppliers of water heaters and stoves); and a dairy equipment supplier.

Before 1930, the property was part of a 19th century residential development along Nelson and Walker Streets, of houses built sometime after 1847. Beginning in the 1910s, the east side of Nelson and Walker Streets was re-developed with warehouse and manufacturing buildings. The first of these was the John Deere Plow Company (built in 1914) on Nelson. Around 1914, the railroad tracks that loop behind your building were laid to serve the shipping needs of warehouse and light manufacturing companies. Over the next 15 years or so, other loft-style warehouses filled in spaces, along the east sides of Nelson and Walker, where houses once stood.

The Mueller Building, Johnson and Johnson building, and the building known as Bee-Line Lofts were all constructed around 1930, and are among the last warehouses built in that section of Castleberry Hill. These buildings are similar in their use of dark brick with cast stone sills and copings and decorative panels with terra cotta insets.

Mueller Co. in Decatur, Illinois has the contracts for McDonald & Company (Engineers & Architects) of Atlanta signed 7/30/29 for a warehouse located at Mangum & Nelson streets. It was to be completed in 90 working days! Cost? $43,962.00. Contractor was Smith and Williams, Inc. of Atlanta. The land sale was handled by Adams-Cates Company Realtors of Atlanta. The land cost $28,000. They have the original title work associated with this sale.

This comes from the Mueller Museum in Decatur, Illinois:
Scan of a page from the July 1930 Mueller Record (the company magazine) has a brief mention and photo of the building without the more recent 2nd story addition (see link below). The building was indeed built for Mueller Co. during a period of significant expansion. Mueller had begun a line of bath and kitchen product in 1926 designed to be comparable to, and competitive with Koehler products. This line involved considerable national marketing and distribution so offices and warehousing were built in many major markets. I don't know the exact dates for the Atlanta facility but the article would seem to indicate that it was a fairly new building in 1930. The Decatur, Illinois company stopped producing vitreous ware in 1933 (the Depression killed demand for new housing and the products that went into them) so I assume the company's ownership of the building ended soon after that date. I hope this information is of interest to the current and prospective occupants.
