Walker-Martin House

 
Posted by Picasa


This house is located on Park Avenue in downtown Tallahassee and was built in 1896 for Mrs. Newell E. Walker whose husband, Mr. S. May Walker, operated a clothing store in Tallahassee for some years. It has been restored and is now used as office space.

Beautiful house, I liked those gorgeous white details in front of it, and the soft green.
They did a great restoration in this house!

Lois, this is a gorgeous house. I love all of the little details, and they did a wonderful job of restoring it. Thanks for your comments on my St. George post. I had not heard about the incident, but my brother filled me in. What a tragedy. I just can't comprehend such a horrible thing. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Kathy

«Louis» is always happy to see old buildings restored and continued in use. We Americans are sometimes too quickly to tear down and rebuild.

It's gorgeous. So glad it was restored. We have a number of similar homes near downtown Ocala that has also been restored and are now used for a variety of business or by professional people. That makes me happy!

What a gorgeous house, I love the turret and the colour and the shutters. And the return verandah. A family member had a book once of American homes and they were all so lovely.
Is there really a $250,000 fine for parking out the front?
Cheers.
