Florida the Sunshine State
Originally built in 1893 by Colonel Peckham as a wedding gift for his daughter. It was later purchased by Dr. Philip Phillips, a major developer of Florida’s citrus industry in the 19th century. Dr. and Mrs. Phillips were major supporters of the arts hosting many cultural events and musicales at their home. Today the home is owned by the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. It has been beautifully restored and is now a bed and breakfast.
