Apalachicola’s historic Middlebrook building, located at the corner of Water Street and Avenue E, is currently undergoing extensive repair and restoration to preserve and protect this historic landmark damaged during the 2018 Hurricane Michael.
To commemorate the work and the history of this iconic landmark, the city is putting together a time capsule that will be buried beneath a soon-to-be poured concrete floor of the building that once served as City Hall and the police station.
Do you have a memory of this great old building that you’d like to share? Did you work in this building at one time? We’re collecting photos, newspaper clippings and general memories of this building constructed in 1836 that is currently undergoing repair and renovation thanks to a $395,000 grant from the National Parks Service and Florida Department of State Division of Historical Resources.
Be a part of history! Bring your pictures to the city offices (192 Coach Wagner Boulevard) by Monday, Sept. 18 and we’ll tuck it gently in the time capsule to save for generations to come! Be sure and write your name and relationship to the building on the back.
