Curry Mansion Inn, Florida Keys
|511 Caroline Street, 33040, Key West, Florida Keys, Florida, UNITED STATES.|
Description: Curry Mansion InnThe house was named after William Curry, a penniless Bahamian immigrant who made his fortune reputedly as a salvager -those scurrilous fellows who preyed on shipwrecked travelers in Florida's pirate-infested waters. Curry attained status as Key West's first millionaire and began building the Mansion in 1855.
The architectural details are common to wreckers, incorporating elements from many ports-of-call; the widow's walk of New England, the ornate trellises and balustrades of New Orleans and the columns and colonnades of the Deep South. Curry's son Milton completed the Mansion in 1899, furnishing it with 18th Century antiques and Victorian pieces which grace the parlor today.
The imposing entry is paneled in bird's-eye maple, handwrought spindles and Tiffany glass sliding doors. A formal dining room is staged with Haviland china and faux replicas of the Curry family's original solid-gold Tiffany flatware. An 1853 Chickering piano, reputedly most recently of Henry James's Newport home, sits in the music room.
