The Knott House
Who could resist this young lady standing in front of the Knott House beckoning me to come in for a tour? The Knott House was the home of Luella and William Knott, often referred to as "the poet and the politician". Luella wrote whimsical poems and attached them to her furnishings with satin ribbons to draw attention to her favorite items in her home. The poems are still there. William Knott served as the Florida's State Treasurer during the depression. William Knott died in his house at the age of 101 and Luella died eight days later at the age of 93. Interestingly, William was born during the Civil War when Abraham Lincoln was president and died in 1965 when Lyndon B. Johnson was president. The house is beautifully preserved and I took lots of pictures which I will be showing on my blog in the coming days. You can read more about the history of this house and the Knotts here. Linking up with signs, signs.
