Weathering the storm

Citrus CountyThis quaint cabin has dual entrances for guests who were traveling through the area, or visiting the nearby fishing camp. Thanks to local, Shannon Lee Burns, for help with identification, background, and vintage image of this historic property:

“The several small cottages were built in the mid-1920s on a fish camp for Lake Magnolia. In the 30’s several small houses from nearby were added to the complex. This was one of the first motels for the burgeoning auto oriented Florida tourist trade and it included a communal bath house and a restaurant. I believe six of the cottages still exist.”

You can visit Shannon’s project called the “Real Old Florida” here
