Description

This exhibit, produced by Orlando Remembered, shows objects from the SunTrust Center, located at 200 South Orange Avenue in Downtown Orlando, Florida. This exhibit features items from previous occupants of the block, including Albert's Drug Store and the First National Bank. F. L. Morse, president of the First National Bank, purchased the block in March of 1934 for $25,000. In 1973, First National merged with 26 other local banks to form Sun Banks. The current 25-story building was opened in 1988 and is the tallest building in Orlando.

Orlando Remembered is a community based group, dedicated to the preservation of Downtown Orlando's past. To date, the group has constructed 18 exhibits in the downtown area that highlight the current building's connection to the past.
