General Note

  • Along with the Presbyterian Church, the house served occasionally as a refuge against the Indians during the Seminole War. In 1856 the house was bought by William Bailey, a prominent Jefferson County planter, who with B.C. Lewis, founded the predecessor of the Lewis State Bank in the old Union Bank building. Later it was moved in 1971 to the northwest corner of Park Ave. and Duval Street. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
  • Accompanying note on back: "THE COLUMNS - Built at Adams and Park streets in the early 1830s by Benjamin Chaires, contractor-banker-planter and probably Florida's first millionaire, and continually in use as dwelling and for several years as Leon County library. Drawing by Donna Johnson."
