Pratt Engineering/Pullman Company
225 Rogers Street
The Pratt Engineering/Pullman Company property is an historic transportation and industrial complex, dating back to the country's industrialization in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Pratt Engineering Company purchased this property adjacent to the rail line in 1900 in what was once the City of Kirkwood. In the 1920's, the Pullman Company bought and expanded the industrial complex for its southeast repair facility. Many of the industrial buildings, characterized by brick clad and riveted iron skeleton construction built by Pratt Engineering and the brick clad reinforced concrete buildings built by the Pullman Company remain on the site. In the 1990's the State of Georgia purchased the property for the operations of the New Georgia Railroad. Since the demise of the train service, there have been no clear plans for the use of the complex.
