Description

The Dickson & Ives Building, located at 214 South Orange Avenue in Downtown Orlando, Florida, in 2001. In the 1880s, H. H. Dickson and Sidney Ives, Sr. arrived in Orlando and opened mercantile establishments independently of one another. The two formed a partnership around 1897 and opened a grocery store on Wast Pine Street.

In 1903, Dickson and Ives purchased the Browne Building and re-opened it as the Dickson-Ives Grocery. In 1913, the grocery store became a department store and discontinued groceries in 1919. In 1920, Dickson and Ives demolished their building and the C. E. Hillyer Company constructed a new brick building to house the Dickson & Ives Company. The present four-story structure was designed with Beaux Arts/Classical terra cotta cornice and friezes. The company was reorganized in 1944 as Dickson and Ives. The department store went out of business on April 11, 1965, and the building was later occupied by several law firms.
