The Lively House



The Lively House sits on the next block over from the three previous houses I have shown you. Lewis M. Lively was a prominent civic leader and local businessman who operated the Middle Florida Ice Company and also established Lively Technical Center in 1937 with the hope that the vocational school would provide individuals with the education and training needed to obtain gainful employment and earn a living. This house was built in 1901.

I am loving this series Lois. I did't realize Tallahassee had such great architecture.

Wow, this is a beauty! The eaves look so exaggerated. Is that a porch or solarium on the left side?? I love porches.

I think it's what we around here call a sunroom. It's on the east side of the house probably to catch the morning sun. I used to work a block away from this house about 30 years ago and I remember when it was a residence. You could always smell bacon cooking in the morning when you walked by.
