Bay View Villa, 1882-1883

Title

Bay View Villa, 1882-1883

Description

"I wrote the Peacocks at Fort Dallas to find a bit of waterfront, build a house and I would come to advise and help as best I could in the establishment of a hotel and help as best I could ... When the house was finished I must admit that there was little evidence of architectural beauty ... but it was a home, thanks to the kind and hospital friends who kept it. Known at first as ';Bay View Villa,' the name was soon changed to 'Peacock Inn.' It was the only hotel in south Dade County." -- The Commodore's Story by Ralph M. Munroe and Vincent Gilpin.
