Built in 1904, the Margaret W. Cotten House is located in the Calhoun Street Historic District near downtown and sits across the street from the Brokaw-McDougall House which I showed a couple of weeks ago here
. The house is currently the home of the Florida Automobile Dealers Association.

This is my kind of house. Well, I couldn't afford it but I love everything about it...those porches especially. What secrets those walls must hold! Beautiful photo, Lois!
Uma bela casa.

Hello, it is a lovely old home. I love the porches! Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!
The verandahs are what makes this house extra special! Lovely!
I could make this house my home and would be on the second floor porch first thing every morning. Thanks for sharing so I could at least dream.
It's wonderful! I have to share something funny...I have Virginia ancestors who were Cottens. When we lived there years ago, we tried to find the plantation place that had belonged to them. There was a small school building on the property. Well, we drove around so much, looking at this possible spot, and that one, that it became a joke. Every time my husband saw a tiny little run-down building for years afterward my husband would pipe up "It's the Cotton Place!" And there, you found an actual Cotton Place! :-)
A very stately house with a wonderful paint job. It made me instantly think of the Arizona Automobile Dealership Association which has a somewhat unusual and modern building here in Phoenix. I guess I should photograph it one of these days.
Love the porch. Beautiful house!
There seem to be such grand homes in that district, Lois!
...I can just imagine sitting on the porch in a rocker! What a grand old house. Thanks Lois for sharing today, please stop again.
Beautiful! It must have a lot of space inside.
A very lovely house, I love those porches. It would be so nice just to sit out there, read or dream the day away. It's simply beautiful!
Oh i love it too-- especially the big porches!!
Great composition in your photo of the historic house ~ lovely!
Happy Week to you,

Doesn't that look a very nice house!
All the best Jan
I've often wondered what it takes for a house to from being a former home to a business. That's a neat house.
It's a fine looking building.
Looks wonderful for its age Lois ☺
