Bloxham Building



This is the north side of the Bloxham Building located in downtown Tallahassee. I have always liked it because it looks so much different from the many other state office buildings in this capital city. It was built in 1925 and was originally a grammar school. Purchased by the state in 1964, it was named in honor of two term Florida Governor William Bloxham, who served from 1881-85 and 1897-1901.

It makes me think of a wedding cake, and I mean that in the nicest way possible. Thanks for sharing it with us.

It's a beautiful building, Lois, and the Spanish Moss in the foreground adds so much to the composition.

It does look more like a school than a government building. Reminds me as to how we should probably send most of our politicians back to school for a good dose of Constitutional and other American history!
