SPACE COAST HISTORY
parcels of the Goodrich estate, including the guesthouse
and six adjoining undeveloped lots. They are restoring
the guesthouse to its original look with Dade County
pine floors and beadboard walls and ceiling. The pool was
restored in 2006 and looks like it did in the 1920s.
“We wanted to piece together the historic property as
it was 100 years ago, but more important, guarantee no
further development or encroachment,” Powell said.
ON THE MAP
Goodrich Island never appeared on a map until Pam
Cooper dug into its history and established that it is
owned by the Audubon Society of Florida. She and Bill
Goodrich were able to get it listed in the U.S. Geological
Survey and placed on Google Maps.
“Now we have it on the map,” she said. “Two weeks ago it
wasn’t on any map.”
Goodrich hopes to visit his great-grandparents’ old estate
one of these days.
“I’m really eager to make a trip out there soon to see the
area, hopefully swim in the old pool, and definitely take a
kayak out to and around the island,” he said.
He’ll also be able to see Jenson’s initials, MHG, and the
date 1-11-28, set in concrete on the diving board platform
of the pool she enjoyed so long ago.
