The Building, when constructed in 1927, was at the forefront of the business community with such prominent tenants as LeRoy Collins (Governor of Florida 1955-1961) and B.K. Roberts (Florida Supreme Court Justice 1949-1976). At six stories, it was the tallest office building in Tallahassee until 1975.
