Many family members have been and remain recognized pillars of the community, serving as elected public officials and hosts of countless political, civic and cultural affairs. the stately structure has withstood the test of time.Imposing double front porches, ornate gingerbread, vibrant colors and elegant woodwork help create this island Icon.
