 Art Gallery    
1020Art 1020 Lafayette Street 383-1020
1020Art1020ART is a most unique place. It is the blend of vision and talents of two people from very different arenas: one, the arts – the other, a developer. What has emerged is the region's largest ongoing selection of fine art. 1020ART has 80 artists of a wide variety of mediums and styles; from emerging to long time professional, from local to international. Every eight weeks the entire collection is rotated – old work coming down, new work going up. Our gift shop full of affordable original items. We utilize our entire two story building; soaring atriums, wandering halls and walkways, mezzanines and lawns, to feature the work of our artists. This year we are adding specialty classes and unique events. Our conference rooms are available for your meetings and gatherings….just let us know your needs as far in advance as possible.)

 Cleaning    
Enviro-Mist P.O. Box 13952 216-2424
Enviro-MistEnviro-Mist uses a soft pressure cleaning system which produces truly impressive results in ridding exteriors of mold and mildew.

The Enviro-Mist soft pressure cleaning system is specifically designed to apply vast amounts of cleaning solution to exterior surfaces with remarkable efficiency. The system cleans, rinses and deodorizes without the use of high pressure (pressure wash) machines. The pressure used to clean and rinse is no higher than 100 PSI or about the strength of a normal water hose.

We clean all buildings residential and commercial: houses, driveways, decks, patios, pool aprons, offices, apartment complexes, etc. While the cleaning solution is deemed safe to plants and vegetation when properly applied, additional precautions are taken to rinse all plans and vegetation before and after the application.
Enviro-Mist is one of the oldest and most established soft pressure wash businesses in the area. Our business address is P.O. Box 13952 but we reside in the Woodland Drives area. Call Jim Stohrer at 216-2424 for a free estimate.

     
 Country Club    
Capital City Country Club 1601 Golf Terrace Dr 222-0419
Capital City Country ClubImmediately to our neighborhood's west is Tallahassee's oldest golf course--a tree-lined 18-hole golf course as challenging as it is breathtaking. Originally called the Hill City Country Club in the 1920s, it was a principal Tallahassee social center in the day. Its wooden clubhouse sat just north of the present-day 13th hole (directly south of Santa Rosa Drive) and had a large ballroom and a dance floor. The building burned down in the 1950s and was replaced by the current clubhouse. 

The club also offers a swimming pool, tennis courts, 19th Hole grille and pro shop, card room, and fine dining for its members. Ballrooms provide some of the most elegant spaces in Tallahassee for wedding receptions, dinner dances, banquets, and other prestigious events.

 Realtors    
Frog Realty 1313 North Gadsden Street 222-FROG (3764)
Frog RealtyThe name Frog Realty was chosen because of Jacques Depart's (the Broker and Woodland Drives resident) French heritage. He relates "The English were always carrying limes on their ships to eat in an attempt to avoid scurvy thus the French liked to cajole them by calling them 'limeys', the English retaliated by calling the French 'Frogs' for their liking of the animal of the same name".

Frog Realty has grown from these humble beginning from a one-person operation to the current realty staff of ten. It was founded in 2004 on the belief that many people with real estate needs are looking for a more relaxed, personal level of professional service, which is not found in the cookie cutter environment of most large firms.
