alabama hotel

the alabama hotel was built in 1921 during the florida 1920's land boom. predating the alabama were the seminole and osceola hotels built around the turn of the century. the osceola hotel burned down in the 1960's which i had the opportunity to witness first hand. the site of the osceola is now a condo on lake osceola. the other wooden hotel in winter park was the seminole. it was declared a fire hazard in the late 1960's and was demolished. the alabama because of it's masonary construction was spared demolition and was converted into condos in the 1970's. the alabama building is worth a look when in winter park to see a remnant of winter park's tourist past.

lincoln apartments

pictured is the facade of the lincoln apartments. the lincoln apartments were built in 1926 during the florida land boom. the lincoln apartments served as a rental property and short term hotel until the late 1990's. the methodist church of winter park bought the building and demolished it with the exception of it's facade. today it is used for classrooms for the methodiost church school. a good example of 1920's florida land boom architecture in downtown winter park.

this spanish style home was built in 1932 and was designed by architect ralph adams cram. many homes in winter park are inspired by the spanish style of architecture made popular by famous florida architects addison mizner, james gamble rodgers, and ralph adams cram in the 1930's.
