b. This one-and-one-half story Frame Vernacular house was constructed by one of Coconut Grove's first African-Bahamian residents and is thought to be one of the first houses with a black owner. Mariah Brown, who immigrated to Florida in 1880, was working at the Peacock Inn when she built this house within walking distance of the hotel. The Brown residence is typical of the wooden houses built in Key West and the Bahamas in the late 1800s. At this time, the house is undergoing reconstruction work.
