The Florida Bar

 
Posted by Picasa


An impressive building sitting on a hill just down the road from the Florida Capitol building is the headquarters for the Florida Bar. Dedicated on October 8, 1966, it was patterned after the architecture of colonial Williamsburg. I have always liked this building because of its columns. The Florida Bar also maintains branch offices in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, and Tampa.

This is a beautiful building Lois. I love the columns too, so "Old South" And the cupola on top is perfect. Kathy

Beautiful, Lois. We have many buildings here which have inspired modern architecture. I'd love to visit colonial Williamsburg.

Can't escape columns in the South. Very beautiful architecture.

It is an impressive building. And it does remind me of Colonial Philidelphia.

A very impressive building. Bricks and columns have such a stately feel.

It looks like it could be a college building. Wonderfully impressive, as it should be.

Yes this building is very impressive! I love brick buildings, and columns as well. We don't have many columned buildings here in Oregon, and I appreciate the ones I do see.

The columns always give a massive look of importance. Just one more example of fine architecture.

I don't believe I've seen a Bar building before. Unusually nice architecture. Great angle to bring out the best in the photo.
