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.

...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!
Oh, this is a beauty.
I would love to take my morning coffee up in the belvedere and watch the world awaken...
To my husband's despair, I love visiting houses like this.
That is a real beauty!
That rooftop structure really makes the place work!
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
A beautiful house---a real treasure
Imagine the long summer evening conversations you could have on those verandas.
How beautiful & so elegant & charming!

Oh what a wonderful historic home! Great photos!
What a beautiful, stately house! Your photos with the trees and moss -- and details of the house -- do it justice.
I absolutely love seeing historic places like this. The photo with the family on the porch is awesome.
Such a nice looking building you've shown us, thank you.
All the best Jan
Wow. Great looking house and atmospheric spooky looking tree. That would be a great place at night on Halloween.
