William Curry, Florida’s first self-made millionaire, purchased this Key West property in 1852 and built a house on this site in 1869. In 1905, the original house was demolished and replaced with the grand Georgian Revival mansion shown in this photo.
The mansion passed through many Curry family members until it was sold to a doctor in 1965, who called it home until 1971. The house sat empty and neglected until it was purchased by the Edith and Al Amsterdam in 1975. It has been fully restored, modernized and expanded, making it a very unique B&B with 28 guest rooms.
We thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay. A beautifully furnished pool-side room, full breakfast, happy hour, top notch service, parking (premium on Key West), and only twenty paces off the famous Duval Street made our departure a sad one.
