Holland Building



A picture of one of the more generic state office buildings downtown. This building was named in honor of Spessard L. Holland, who served as governor of Florida from 1941 to 1945 and was later elected to the U. S. Senate in 1946. He was only the second former governor of Florida to be elected to the Senate and the first Florida native to serve as both Governor and Senator.

it does look quite generic doesn't it?!

I like the columns.

This building is more modern, surely, than the historical buildings you have been showing us. Very clean cut, but I sure like those older ones, too.

It kind of looks like the white house, almost :D

I do so love the names your men have - never come across Spessard before. And they all have an initial somewhere too. His name is fancier than the building.
