The Columns


The oldest private residence that was built along Park Avenue is the "Columns". It was built around 1830 and is now the home of the Tallahassee Area Chamber of Commerce. This brick Greek Revival structure was built by William "Money" Williams, a prominent banker. Threatened with demolition in 1971, the Columns was relocated across Park Avenue and restored by the Tallahassee Chamber.

Beautiful building. So glad the Tallahassee Chamber of commerce restored it. It makes a perfect historical office for them. Recycle, Reuse, I love it;)
