A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CURRY MANSION INN
Over a century earlier a penniless youth sailed from the Bahamas to Key West. It was 1837, and the island was occupied mostly by fishermen and wreckers. He found work as a clerk and after what can only be called a phenomenally successful career that spanned more than forty years, he had created an empire that encompassed merchandising, wrecking and shipbuilding. William Curry had arrived. He is considered to be the first self-made millionaire in the State of Florida. William built his home in 1869, on the site the family had homesteaded since 1855. In 1901, his son Milton, a partner in the William Curry and Sons Company, purchased the home from the heirs and demolished almost all but the cook house to construct the elaborate Georgian Revival mansion that stands on the property today.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SOUTHERNMOST HOUSE
Judge Jeptha Vining Harris built the mansion that is now called the Southernmost House in 1897 for $250,000 His wife was the youngest daughter of William Curry, one of Florida’s first millionaires. The Curry family were builders with eight mansions in the Historic District of Key West. The Harris family were prominent citizens at the turn of the century and had invested in Henry Flagler's Overseas Railroad to Key West, often entertaining him at the mansion during the railroad's construction.
The house is Queen Anne Victorian style, and was designed as a one-bedroom mansion. It has open-water views, public rooms, two story balconies, and large stained glass windows. The Southernmost House was the first home in Key West with electricity, and Mrs. Harris was able to engage Thomas Edison to oversee the electrical design and installation for the house In the 1930s air conditioning was installed.
