On Tuesday, October 4, 2005, the Wells Street entrance of the NFB Jernigan Institute officially opened as the main entrance of the National Federation of the Blind complex. This south front of the Institute is newly landscaped. The Johnson Street entrance is now officially closed, though our mailing address will remain 1800 Johnson Street since so much printed material and so many public service announcements with the original address are in circulation.

The reception area in the fourth-floor atrium. Here a guest signs in while the receptionist, Mr. Branch, looks on from behind his horseshoe-shaped counter. The entrance to Members Hall is visible in the upper left corner. The hallway to President Maurerís office can be seen leading off to the right.
