sense of place

Quincy, Florida courthouse
Dome of the Gadsden County Courthouse. Quincy Florida, Built 1913, architect Hal F Hentz of Hertz, Reid and Adler. The firm is “known in the Southeast for their Beaux-Arts style and as the founding fathers of the Georgia school of classicism.”
Arkansas Capital building
