The Whalehead Club

The Whalehead Club Review

This 21,000-square-foot monument to gracious living was built between 1922 and 1925 as the private residence of a Northern couple taken with the area's reputation for waterfowl hunting (the home was given its current name by the second owner). After having been abandoned, sold, and vandalized, it was restored by a team of specialists and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A floral motif is carried throughout the art-nouveau home in Tiffany lamps with flower detailing and mahogany woodwork carved with water lilies.
