Interesting Architecture of Key West

The story of the "Two Sisters Houses" is interesting, because they were built by the father of two sisters who didn't like each other much. Today, the houses are priced in the Millions of Dollars.

The "Artist House" on Eaton Street, built between 1890-98 was formerly the home of Painter Robert Eugene Otto and his wife, Anne, a concert and jazz pianist.

I call it "The Yellow House". It is not really a famous house, just a nice and colorful one with a lovely, lush garden.

The "Boca Casa" shows the typical gingerbread architecture of Key West houses.

The "Southernmost House" is located near the Southernmost Point on the Atlantic side of Duval Street.
