Hidden down a tree-lined side street is this collection of 23 buildings in the Mayan Revival style—with Mesoamerican motifs—that contain an art gallery and artists studios. Recognized by Florida as a historic site and on the National Register of Historic Places, the center was founded as an art colony in 1937 by American artist and architect André Smith (1880–1959). It continues his tradition of art instruction and contains a major collection of his works. Part
of the Art & History Museums Maitland, including the Maitland Historical Museum and the quirky telephone Museum.
