We're back in our old stomping grounds in Tallahassee this weekend (Go Noles!). The Caroline Brevard Grammar School, also known as the Bloxham Building, prominently fronts Calhoun Street in downtown Tallahassee. Designed by architect William A. Edwards in the Mediterranean Revival style, the building was constructed in 1925. It is clad in stucco, features some beautiful arch work in the projecting central pavilion, and is capped by a low-pitched terracotta tile roof, which is common of the style. Mediterranean Revival was very popular in South Florida in the early 20th century; however, far fewer of these buildings were built in the northern part of the state, making the Bloxham Building an even cooler building to feature! We’ll try and grab a few more cool Tallahassee buildings while we're down here because it has a ton of great architecture to feature!
