Scott and Cabinet to decide on $580,000 purchase of property adjacent to The Grove

by Dara Kam | March 19th, 2012

Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet will choose whether to add a part of Florida’s history to the state’s historical resources tomorrow. The price? $580,000.

The panel will decide whether to buy a three-quarter acre parcel adjacent to The Grove, the former home of the late Gov. LeRoy Collins, his wife, Mary Call Collins and their family. The antebellum home was built by Mary Call Collins’s great-grandfather, Richard Keith Call, a two-term territorial governor of Florida.

The Collinses gave The Grove, adjacent to the governor’s mansion in mid-town Tallahassee, to the state, which has first right of refusal on the neighboring properties. The trust that owns the properties received a purchase offer for the two lots, now the site of a law office and a parking lot.

    I didn’t dare touch the last thread out of the fear of disqualification of the Maddow contest. That said, even if I won, I’d probably buy the Kindle version anyways.
