The house was named for William Curry, a penniless Bahamian immigrant who made his fortune reputedly as a salvager -those scurrilous fellows who preyed on shipwrecked travelers in Florida's pirate-infested waters.- Curry attained status as Key West's first millionaire and began building the Mansion in 1869. The architectural details are common to wreckers, incorporating elements of many ports-of-call: the widow's walk of New England, the ornate trellises and balustrades of New Orleans and the columns and colonnades of the Deep South. Curry's son Milton completed the Mansion in 1899, furnishing it with the 18th-century antiques and Victorian pieces gracing the parlor today. The imposing entry is paneled in bird's-eye maple, handwrought spindles and Tiffany glass sliding doors. A formal dining room is staged with Haviland china and faux replicas of the Curry family's original solid-gold Tiffany flatware. An 1853 Chickering piano, reputedly most recently of Henry James's Newport home, sits in the music room. Key Lime Pie was first created in the Curry Mansion kitchen by Aunt Sally. Today the home of innkeeper, Edith Amsterdam, the Mansion is also an intriguing museum listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Curry Mansion Inn...where the elegance of Key West's past is equaled only by the elegance of it's present.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the B&B. We stayed in the cozy queen room located in the guest house. It was very clean room and the tiles in the shower were white. After exploring Key West in the heat, it was nice coming back to our B&B and taking a dip in the pool. The breakfast... More

I was in awe! This was a dream home with so much history. Beautiful woodwork and restored amazing. Free with suggested donation. Both me and my 13 year old son loves walking thru the home (without a guide) to view the beauty of a home from 1896. I was in love from top to bottom. A must see! Especially if... More

We toured the Curry Mansion which is beautiful and has many nice decorations the owner has. It is from another era and is worth the tour - they ask that you contribute a donation to the humane society. In addition, the place is a guest house too. If we had known that we probably would have stayed there when we... More

The place was decked out like a birthday cake. We heard that they opened to many friends, the public, to celebrate Edith's 90th birthday. Really a beautiful place. We met several people who were staying there and really raved about the place!

We'd looked at the Curry Mansion online, but it was booked full, so we just went by one day to check it out. For $5.00 you get a self guided tour. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the house, all the wonderful family photos and especially meeting Edith, the owner.

It's a hotel/B&B but also a great history museum. Every room is set up just like in the early 1900's. It's a quickie for those days when you don't know what else to do.
