Orlando’s crown jewel of history isn’t a sprawling mansion or a weathered cabin, but the Rogers Building. Constructed in 1886, it stands proudly in the heart of downtown Orlando, a testament to the city’s early development.

Originally an English Gentlemen’s Club built in the Queen Anne style, this vibrant building served as a social hub. Today, it’s home to the Downtown Arts District, a contemporary art gallery fostering Orlando’s creative spirit.

Visitors can come to admire the Rogers Building’s distinctive architectural design as it stands as a captivating reminder of Orlando’s transformation from a small town to a vibrant metropolis.
