‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort commemorated the official historic designation of the storied Captiva Island Resort Sunday, May 20.
The resort was officially listed in the National Register of Historic Places on December 15, 2011, according to Alissa M. Slade, chief of the bureau of historic preservation and deputy state historic preservation officer. The resort’s unique, rich history and dedication to preserving Florida’s cultural resources helped it to earn this esteemed designation. ‘Tween Waters Inn was established by F. Bowman and Grace B. Price in 1931.

The resort has been welcoming guests ever since – celebrating the 80 years of guests at ‘Tween Waters Inn just last year. Other historic landmarks within the resort include the Old Captiva House – the fine dining restaurant first built as a one-room school for children of Captiva’s pioneer settlers.
