Throwback Thursday: Seagle Building
February 12, 2015
This is the Seagle Building, downtown Gainesville’s “skyscraper” and, in the 1950s and 60s, home of the State Plant Board, which morphed into the Florida Department of Agriculture Division of Plant Industry in 1960. In 1967 FDACS-DPI moved to the complex it still occupies at 1911 SW 34th Street.
Begin in the 1920s, the Seagle Building was not completed and occupied until the 1930s. A brief history of the landmark is available here.
