This house was built prior to 1900 by Gen. John B. Castleman, a veteran of the Civil War and the Spanish-American War. Gen. Castleman, from Louisville, KY., used this as his winter home for many years.

The General was active in political and civic affairs in Kentucky, and here in Florida enjoyed cruising the Indian River in his yacht. He was one of the prime movers in the building of the first Eau Gallie Yacht Club.

Gen. Castleman died in May, 1918, in Louisville, Ky.
