Weekend Reflections--Lewis House
The B.C. Lewis House is located in the Park Avenue Historic District near downtown Tallahassee and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. It was constructed around 1845 and purchased in 1850 by Benjamin Cheever Lewis, a pharmacist who later founded the forerunner of Lewis State Bank, which was one of Tallahassee’s most important financial institutions for many years. With assistance from a City of Tallahasssee Historic Preservation Grant, the Lewis House was rehabilitated as offices and the corner lot remains as a permanent green space. Kathy over at Emptynester pointed out the reflections in the windows and suggested I make this a Weekend Reflections post, so I am doing just that!
