Notes:
Avenida, avenue of the palms, was purchased from Joe Jefferson, who was an actor and a noted landscape architect. Mr. Jefferson probably designed Magnolia Gardens in Charleston and redesigned the experimental station, avenues and floral designs with the assistance of his neighbor and architect, Fred Schultz. In 1912, Lucius W. Robinson purchased the property and this once famous fishing camp in the 1890's became a permanent residence for Mr. Robinson. The existing trees and flowers were numerous and in 1914 the house was completed for Mr. Robinson and his family. Avenida became a popular stopover for houseboats. In the mid-1930's the beach house was built by the Ward Wickwires and the main house was no longer needed. The main house was sold to the Pryors whose interest in Jupiter Island influenced and guided the development of Jupiter Island Club into an outstanding resort. In 1936, Fred and Florence Gordon acquired the interest in Avenida and maintained it until 1954 when it was sold again.
