It is known as the "Honeymoon Cottage," and was built by Henry Taylor in 1959 for Phillip and Margaret Thomas of Gainesville.
Constructed on stilts about 300 feet from the shore, it was connected to land by a long narrow boardwalk also on stilts.
Over the years, various storms have taken their toll. In 1985, the cottage was pretty much destroyed by Hurricane Elena. Since then, other storms have destroyed bit and pieces of it until there is nothing left except a few of the stilts and a few boards.
Personally, I think the city of Cedar Key should rebuild the cottage for it has become such an important part of Cedar Key's soul!
RIP. The entire photo blogging community is in mourning today after learning of the death of Tina and Tom Forrester who were killed in a car accident a couple of days ago in southern Ontario. Tina, known as EG, or Cameral Girl, was a good friend and an excellent photographer. We will miss her greatly. Our deepest sympathy goes out to their families.
