Here is the front view of the house I showed you in yesterday's post. The White House is located in the Park Avenue Historic District near downtown Tallahassee. It was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1979. Constructed in 1885, the house served as the residence of a number of prominent Tallahassee families. The high ceilings, spacious hallway, and large windows added grandeur and also functioned to dissipate heat. In 1980, the house was restored for use as offices. I had a difficult time getting a clear photograph of this old house because of those big old beautiful trees and the Spanish moss hanging from their branches, but that is part of the charm of Tallahassee and I wouldn't have it any other way!
