The Holmes House was originally owned by Dr. and Mrs. Robert C. Holmes. Dr. Holmes was a long-time Trustee of Florida Southern College, and the couple gifted their home on July 29, 1992 to the College. The house was passed to the College in 2001 after the death of Marie Beaman Holmes in 2000, and it soon became the home of the Nursing Department’s faculty offices. After the construction of the Joe K. and Alberta Blanton Nursing Building, the house became the home of the Enrollment Management and Evening Programs Office. The house was later demolished, and the site at 727 East Park Street was used to build the Wynee Warden Dance Studio in 2014.
