Description
Architect: Oliver J. Vinour

In the 20s, it was the location of the Charlotte Operator Switchboard. More recently, it housed the central switch for the 704 area code and the AT&T Long Lines facility.

Upon the seperation of the Bell System in the mid-80s, the building had to be split between BellSouth and AT&T, as much of the equipment could not be seperated.

Undergoing many additions and renovations, the most recent was in 1978, when most of the backside of the building facing Davidson Street was constructed.
