    DeFuniak Springs FL

    As inspired by Otis. Circle Drive around Lake DeFuniak is very interesting. Unfortunately, Google streetview does not do it justice.

















































    There are several more in the "Florida - Other" gallery. I just get frustrated...

    Great shots, as expected. I'll look through the gallery shots, even if I'm not sure I'm looking at the right ones!

    I like the names of Places... The Big Store, The Opinion Place, The Bookstore.... very descriptive.

    Regarding what I assume to be house #7, you think they would have a much nicer accessory building in the backyard!

    As always great pics. Thanks for sharing. I didn't know what to expect after your lady posted "We're at the Best Western and we're hammered!"

    Thanks! It's just what I needed! Those are terrific photos. Would the style of what I think is the chamber of commerce building be "carpenter classical?" What was that building built for?

    Off-topic:
    DeFuniak. I dated a girl whose last name was Feduniak. She was of Ukranian descent. Was DeFuniak Springs founded by Ukranians?

    Some descriptions

    The first two are of the Florida Chautauga Assembly Building.

    The third is Sidney Johnston Catts' home. The 22nd Governor of Florida.

    No. He apparently was an Italian railroad engineer. Did the trains run on time? I don't know.

    Thanks for the comps, ya'll.

    Thanks for sharing these! I haven't taken a sight-seeing road trip in a while, and enjoyed seeing these photos.
