    Description

    The John Wesley Dobbs Building, located at 135 Auburn Avenue, was built in 1910 as the Atlanta School Book Depository or Southern Schoolbook Depository Building. During the 1970’s it served as a tire warehouse. In 1985, it was restored by the ER Mitchell Construction Company and now houses the APEX (African American Panoramic Experience) Museum, devoted to African-American history. In 1987, the building was renamed after John Wesley Dobbs, the civic and political leader often referred to as the unofficial “mayor” of Auburn Avenue.
