In 1912 the home was built by the Myrick family on five acres of pineapple and citrus trees

land that was purchased from Captain T.M.Rickards a partner with Henry Morrison Flagler.

In 1918 the home was sold to the Race family and with their daughter Lillian lived there for

over sixty years. In 1975 after an injury Lillian could no longer care for the home and it was sold

to a developer.

Hi Barbara Jo, it is such a fun place for children. When I was there taking pictures

there was a bus full of children there. They were all having a great time. Thanks for stopping by.
