The Old Florida Statehouse was threatened with demolition in the late 1970s when the new capitol was built. The new capitol building now stands behind the Old Florida Statehouse. The Historic Old Florida Statehouse was saved through citizens’ action and eventually restored to its 1902 appearance. Architectural highlights include the elaborate art glass dome, red and white striped awnings, and a representation of the Florida State Seal over the entry columns. The restoration project (1978—1982) was conducted under the supervision of the Department of General Services in conjunction with the Department of State. This intensive project of historical and archaeological investigation makes Florida’s former capitol one of the most thoroughly documented restoration projects in the nation.

Print size is 30″ wide x 20″ high and is framed with a 2″ white mat and Non-Glare Glass. Each print is digitally signed.
