Rumor has it that the Florida House Inn is under contract and will reopen at some point after extensive renovations.  That will be good to see.  It broke the hearts of everyone on the island when it closed down in January.  Unless you’ve owned a building from the 1800′s, it’s hard to fathom just how quickly decay can set in.  Constant passionate maintenance is required just to keep up.  Leaving a building that was constructed in 1857 unoccupied and untended for too long is not a good idea.  We’re happy that someone has chosen to make the commitment to bring this building back to the landmark status that it once enjoyed.
