Also see . . . Olmsted-Hixon-Albion Block (Wikipedia). The Olmsted-Hixon-Albion Block is actually three separate 19th-century buildings that were conjoined by internal connections in 1929, making a good example of adaptive reuse of commercial architecture in the city. Overall, the building is five stories in height, and retains the facades of its original constituent buildings. (Submitted on October 23, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
