The history behind Birmingham's
most beautiful building

Henry Upson Sims and architect David O. Whilldin designed and built The Florentine in the mid 1920's. Said to be in honor of Mr. Sims beloved teacher, Hannah Elliott, who took his class on a tour of Italy. The exterior displays terra-cotta ornaments framing two arcades supported by marble columns and the eaves are crowned by a short red-tile roof. The Italianate style brings the "IT" factor to every event!

After undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation in 2014. This historic landmark has been restored to a beacon of elegance and charm.
