Reinhart C. M. Nelson, one of many midwesterners lured to the area by the promotional literature of land developers, moved his family here from Minnesota in 1905. He built this structure in 1910. Named for its park-like setting, it is an unusual example of standard 20th century hotel form. It features innovative concrete construction, distinctive cast concrete Classical columns, and a wraparound porch. The building was converted for use as a private residence in 1920.
