This was the winter home of Chicago millionaire, James Deering (International Harvester, etc.). The important parts of the extensive grounds and the mansion are a fascinating museum. He spared no expense to mimic a home of Italian aristocracy. The bayside location in a tropical jungle and the work to create and maintain formal gardens are impressive. The home incorporates entire rooms purchased in Europe and moved here.
