FLORIDA HISTORIC HOMES

Updated March 1, 2021

Historic homes have always fascinated me during my extensive Florida travels.

You can tell so much about the history and character of a town by looking around at its collection of historic homes and business buildings.

Some of them are historic enough to be on the National Register of Historic Places or local historic districts, but many are just old Florida homes with a lot of character but no pedigree. 

Many of them are better built than their modern counterparts.  Some older lumber, for example, is much denser than the modern stuff and far more resistant to rot and termites.
