This is a grand and gracious home that has dominated Eaton Street for decades. The most recent owners did a splendid job in upgrading and maintaining one of Key West's most treasured homes. Below are some photos of the house through
620 Eaton Street was built in 1885 and photographed here in 1900
620 Eaton Street in 1911 when the property was known as the
Key West Electric Company Bachelor's Quarters
620 Eaton Street in 1965
620 Eaton Street in the 1990's before restoration was undertaken
I moved to Key West in December 1993 and remember walking by this home many times and thinking to myself "Why doesn't somebody buy this place and fix it up?" Somebody did and then sold it. The most recent owner improved on the prior restoration and has handed off the property to a new steward. Maybe somebody will write a blog about this old girl in 2085. I hope she will still be standing and that the other treasures of Old Key West are keeping her company. They, sadly, don't make them like this anymore.
