Old ticket window
This picture shows one of the original ticket windows where you would have purchased tickets to an event at what used to be known as Centennial Field near downtown. Centennial Field opened in 1924 to celebrate Tallahassee's 100th birthday. It hosted political rallies, graduations, and other community events and served as the home field for Florida State University football and a semi-professional baseball team. It is no longer in existence, but some of its old walls are still standing and surround part of Cascades Park. You can see one of the lakes in the park and a fountain through the old ticket window. You can also see a picture of what the baseball park looked like back in the 1930's here.
