Regarding Hutchinson House. The brick home has three stories and a basement, a large porch with Corinthian columns, and a high mansard roof (still with its original slate tiles). It is an example of Second Empire architecture, a style rarely seen in Florida.
The building has been a private home, a hospital, a frat house, and currently houses a law office.
