Historical Homes in Pensacola, FL

You can find highly decorative Victorian styled homes throughout Downtown Pensacola and the North Hill area.

Downtown Pensacola also has a large assortment of pre- and post-World War II cottages. These are simple constructions built in the 1930’s through the late 1940’s that served as home to many of the family’s serving in the armed forces or families that made their living in the downtown and bay front areas.

These cottages usually feature covered front porches for enjoying the cool breezes and wooden planked ceilings and walls. These types of wall and ceilings served two purposes. First, the wood was inexpensive due to the lumber mills located here. Secondly, the wooden ceilings were usually stained a dark color which helped to make the interior of these homes feel cooler during the summer months.
