Belle Haven Inn Doomed (1925)
OLD LANDMARK DOOMED
The old Belle Haven Inn, Palm and Main streets, which has been one of the familiar landmarks of the city since its erection in 1898, will be replaced, in a short time, by a new 15-story hotel and a nine-story home and office building for the American National Bank. The Adair interests are building the hotel. This old inn, first known as the DeGoto hotel, has served thousands of tourists. Other famous old rooming houses of the city were the old Sarasota house, the Vincent house and the Prentice house.
