g17 D ORR HOUSE WAS POST BELLUM SOCIAL CENTER By HAMPTON DUNN PENSACOLA --The pretty cottage next door to Old Christ Church and overlook ing historic Seville Square is the Dorr House. It's painted a pleasing yellow, called Seville saffron, with white trim, and was restored by the Pensacola Heritage Foundation, Inc., which has its headquarters there. Right after the Civil War, Pensacola enjoyed a lumber boom and the Dorr House is a splendid example of the post bellum homes. Erected between 1868 1871 by a soc ialite couple, Eben Walker and Clara Barkley Dorr it was the site of many gala parties. The structure features high ceilings, riff pine floor, slate mantels and Gibbs windows on the front, and reflects the Victorian architectural traditions. The house is across from the site in Seville Square of a British guardhouse (constructed about 1765), the foundation of which was uncovered by the Pensacola Preservation Society in 1966. In its later life, before restoration, the Dorr House declined and became a type of rooming establishment. The Heritage Foundation volunteers donated several thousand hours redecorating the Dorr House. It is furnished with antiques and the decor resembles that of the early Victorian Period. The attractive building was the first struct ure restored at Seville Square and triggered a vast restoration program underway in this historic city.
