Biographical/Historical Note

The Mackle Construction Company was a leading builder of residential and commercial property in the southeast. The company was founded by Frank E. Mackle, Sr. in Jacksonville, Florida in 1908. Mackle subsequently operated as a general contractor in the cities of Birmingham, Atlanta, and Nashville. His company was first listed in the Atlanta City Directory in 1911 as Mackle-Crawford Construction Company on 26 Stewart Avenue with S. R. Crawford as president and F. E. Mackle as secretary and treasurer. The name was changed in 1913 to Mackle Construction Company and remained the same until 1921, which is the last year the company appeared in the directory. The Atlanta office was located in the Grant Building from 1913-1921. In 1938, Mackle moved to Florida and managed the company along with his sons Frank, Jr., Robert, and Elliott. After the death of Frank Mackle, Sr. in 1941, his sons managed the company and builder of post-war housing in Florida.
