Overview

THIS HISTORICAL VICTORIAN ESTATE, BETTER KNOWN AS THE JOHN WRIGHT HOUSE, IS SET ON 35 ACRES AND SURROUNDED BY MAJESTIC OAKS, PECAN TREES, FRUIT TREES. IT IS A LANDMARK OF THE SOUTH AND THE HERO THAT ONCE LIVED IN IT DURING THE TURN OF THE 1900's. THE HOME AND ITS STORY HAS BEEN FEATURED IN DOCUMENTARIES, A HOLLYWOOD MOVIE, BOOKS, AND ARTICLES. IT SITS QUIETLY IN AN OPEN 4 ACRE CLEARING SURROUNDED BY A POLE BARN, A SEPARATE WORKSHOP AND COVERED CARPORT BUILDING. THIS PROPERTY STILL MAINTAINS THE ORIGINAL CHARACTER OF ROSEWOOD 1901 AND THE STORE OWNER, JOHN WRIGHT, THAT LIVED THERE AND SAVED SO MANY LIVES DURING A WEEK OF VIOLENCE KNOWN AS THE ROSEWOOD MASSACRE. THIS IS THE ONLY HOUSE IN ROSEWOOD THAT WAS LEFT STANDING. THE HOUSE WAS BUILT WITH THE MATERIALS TAKEN FROM THE SURROUNDING TREES. THE FLOORS ARE SUPPORTED BY LOGS THAT STILL REMAIN IN ORIGINAL CONDITION. THERE IS A HISTORY LIKE NO OTHER THAT COMES WITH THIS HOUSE AND ITS PROPERTY THAT MAKES IT A DESTINATION POINT. THERE IS A HISTORICAL MARKER THAT GIVES THE HISTORY BEHIND THE PROPERTY (SEE PICTURES). THIS WOULD MAKE A GREAT INVESTMENT AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE A HISTORICAL TOUR ELEMENT FOR EDUCATORS. IT COULD EASILY BE RESTORED AND THE HISTORY WOULD CONTINUE TO BE REMEMBERED. THE HOME IS ONLY 8 MILES FROM THE COASTAL COMMUNITY OF CEDAR KEY WITH POPULAR RESTAURANTS, QUAINT SHOPS, ART STORES, GREAT FISHING, A BEACH AND PARK, AND MANY EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. THE COMMUNITY HAS A YEARLY ART FESTIVAL AND SEAFOOD FESTIVAL.**SHOWINGS BY APPT ONLY**
