Annie Lenora Shepard was a leader in Tallahassee one hundred Years ago. Her name appears as the owner of many properties in Frenchtown, and The history reports that she stood tall beside the Male leaders when she faced the City Commission about moving a cemetery. She was a member of the Woodmen Of the World and was a Club Woman for sure. And here in Tallahassee She was a leader in the city's Woman's Working Band, and at some point in the early decades of the ownership, her name alone "signed" the deed for the property and the House.
It was with this National organization that the House at 648 was conceived. She helped to raise the money for the land and the construction of the house.
And unlike many other cities in America at the time, Mrs. Shepard had a bank account. It was in Capital City Bank that the donations for the House were deposited. She must have been a real force.
