A Storied Past

The Southern Exchange Ballrooms at 200 Peachtree St. NW have a rich history, originating as the Davison & Douglas department store in 1891. Over the years, the building transformed and flourished amidst Atlanta’s evolving business scene and railroads’ influence. It eventually became Davison-Paxon-Stokes, purchased by R.H. Macy in 1927. The redesign of the store was inspired by Macy’s Herald Square flagship store and was helmed by renowned Atlanta architect Philip Shutze. Today, elements of its luxurious past, such as the marble-floored cosmetics and jewelry area, can be seen in the venue’s Whitehall Ballroom.
