'ARCHITECTURE AND HOUSING -#61S
(Daytona Beach)

The architecture of the Daytona Beach area features some

interesting examples of private residences. .There is no set type

6f architecture ii this community, but like all Florida towns,

Spanish or Mediterranean types.are modified to suit the taste and

use of the owner.

SThe esidence of E. L. King, built of native rock, is a

1opy of an Italian palace and is furnished with original examples

of Fifteenth Century tables, beds, plates and other household neces-i

cities. The pictures and sculpture are particularly interesting,

illustrating the periods of Italian art, including the-primitive.

!he house was built in 1929 and was one of the first examples of the

tery about it. Mrs. Burgoyne, while she does not appear in public,

is a public-spirited woman who has contributed in many ways to the

building of the town in carrying out the plans and expressed wishes

of the late Commodore.

The Halifax District Hospital is a handsome building in the

modified Spanish manner.

It was opened Jan. 2, 1928 in the Daytona Highlands residen-

tial section, 3 miles west of Ridgewood Ave., on Volusia Ave. It is

equipped with 125 beds, modern laboratory, X-Ray dept. and all the

equipment of a thoroughly modern hospital.
