Brokaw-McDougall House







The Brokaw-MCDougall House is one of Tallahassee's most beautiful remaining antebellum homes. Construction was begun in 1856 and completed in 1860. The house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and currently is home to the offices of the Florida Department of State's Division of Cultural Affairs. You can read more about the history of this home here. You can view a photograph of the house taken in the year 1890 here.

Linking to Tuesday's Treasures.

...Lois, what a gorgeous home! I can just imagine sitting in a rocker on the front porch. Thanks for joining Tuesday's Treasure, I hope that you stop back again with another treasure.

The word, "stately," comes to mind. There are not a lot of these wonderful old homes left but this one has had some TLC and looks beautiful. Your photos bring forth that beauty very well, also!

I am glad you included the 1890 photo link, and this is a beautiful home, then and now. love the trees and moss and those trees and the house lived through the civil war. I would like to make the little room on top my reading room with a tiny desk for my laptop

What a beautiful, stately house! Your photos with the trees and moss -- and details of the house -- do it justice.
