History Hunt #2 w/ Answer

This castle-like brick building was demolished and a modern building now sits on the lot in downtown Tampa. Any guesses where it was? Can you imagine it in downtown Tampa still? What might it have been reused as today? Would it serve as a destination that locals and visitors would want to visit?


This is how the same site at the corner or Kennedy and Morgan in downtown Tampa looks today (via Google Earth images):

  1. I believe this building was the Central Methodist Episcopal Church (The Castle) at East Lafayette and Morgan Streets in Tampa. In March, 1925 the pastor’s wife (my grandmother) hand wrote a family letter on church letterhead which shows a photo of the same bulding. Even the street light is the same. The Pastor at that time was Edward Ellis Carr.
