Key West Museum of Art & History

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 15 October 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The Custom House and Old Post Office is a historic site located at 281 Front Street, Key West, Florida, United States. On September 20, 1973, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

The Custom House currently serves as the Key West Museum of Art & History, which is one of three museums operated by the Key West Art & Historical Society. Exhibits include local history, famous personalities including Ernest Hemingway, maritime history, and works by local artists.
The building was designed by architect William Kerr, and was completed in 1891. The United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida met here from its completion until 1932, when the building was transferred to the United States Navy.

Nice looking place, yet even as a late 1800s building it looks relatively modern - must be those bricks!

I recognize those sculptures in front as the work of an artist local to me - J Seward Johnson. He has sculptures throughout this museum. Lovely image - the light is beautiful.
