Gothic Architecture


Green Nohohon at the old Sacred Heart Hospital building
The old Sacred Heart building is on 12th Avenue. The building's late gothic revival architecture was done by A.O. Von Herbulis. The building consists of four stories, sandstone veneer, a main block flanked by two 3-story wings, and a raised basement. There are quoins, lintels and belt courses made of Indiana limestone.

This was the site of the first major hospital in Pensacola and was a major undertaking at its time. In 1965, the building ceased being used as hospital when Sacred Heart relocated to its current 9th Avenue location.

The way the place looks makes me think of something that I would see in an English setting. Is it Tea time yet?
