If you love history and artful elegance, then Frances Carlton should be on your list to see. Built in 1924 to serve as furnished rentals for Northerners, this Mediterranean Revival style building was part of the Florida land boom amidst the roaring 20's. Now a condominium, this building was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1984. The building was designed to resemble the ancient hostelry of the Pyrenees along the Spanish border of Southern France.
