Series V, National Register of Historic Places, 1993

This series consists of a notebook with the application form for obtaining National Register of Historic Places designation for the Lakeland High School building on Florida Avenue (Now Lawton Chiles Middle Academy). It was recognized in 1993 because the building has local significance in architecture. It was designed in Collegiate Gothic style by E. C. Hosford, and built by Gilbert Wright in 1927. "The high school contributes to the sense of time, place, and historical development through its location, design, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association. It provides an important architectural and educational link to the heritage of Lakeland."
