Sarasota Times Building

Videos: Sarasota History

Location: 1216 1st Street, Sarasota, FL 34236

The Times was founded in 1899 by CVS Wilson and his wife Rose. The original Times building was located at 241 Main Street. After Mr. Wilson's death in 1910, Rose continued to publish the paper.

By 1923 Rose made the difficult decision to sell the paper to L.D. Reagin who in turn chose to relocate the Times to the building that stands today at 1216 1st Street. The building is currently home to Ceviche Tapas Bar and Restaurant.
