::  Marjory Stoneman Douglas House
3744-3754 Stewart Avenue
Years Built: 1924-1926
Architect: George Hyde
Dates Designated: 1989, 1995

a. Author, activist, and Medal of Freedom honoree Marjory Stoneman Douglas lived and worked in this house for more than 70 years. When she died in 1998 at age 108, Douglas was probably best known as an environmentalist. In 1947, she focused national attention on Florida's unique natural resources with her book, The Everglades: River of Grass, which she wrote in this house. The building is an excellent local example of Masonry Vernacular architecture featuring an eclectic combination of Tudor Revival and Medieval Revival details.
