Lakeland in Polk County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Women's Club of Lakeland
59 Lake Morton Drive
The Colonial Revival style was first introduced at the Philadelphia Exposition in 1876 and was brought to Florida in the late 1880’s. It signified a rebirth of interest in the early English and Dutch houses of the Atlantic Seaboard and drew upon Georgian and Adam architecture for references. Typical Colonial Revival characteristics that can be seen here include an accentuated front door with a decorative pediment and sidelights, a hipped roof, and double hung sash windows in adjacent pairs. The Woman’s Club building is a contributing structure to the East Lake Morton Residential District, which was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.
Erected 1999 by The City of Lakeland Historic Preservation Board and the Florida Department of State. (Marker Number F-414.)
