General Note

  • Built in 1835 for Henry L. Rutgers, the home was constructed by George Proctor, a free black man who built a number of Tallahassee's finer homes. It was sold to Federal Judge Thomas Randall in 1850. In 1870 the house was sold to the banker George Lewis the I. It was later to become the home of C.B. Collins State Treasurer. Charles Ashenhard also lived here for many years until it was bought in the 1950s by Clifton Van Brunt Lewis. The house was later remodeled in 1976. Noteworthy exterior features include the scored stucco (to imitate stonework), the cornice with mousetooth brickwork, and the 3-section windows.
  • Accompanying note: "TALLAHASSEE'S FIRST BATH TUB - A windmill on top of the George Lewis home at [424?] N. Calhoun St. provided water for the first bath tub with plumbing in Tallahassee...The home is now the Moose Lodge."
