A spur track for the Florida East Coast Railway was once located on the north side of this site. The track went out on a dock where freight and passengers were loaded onto river boats for the journey south.

In 1902, the East Coast Lumber and Supply Co. built its planing mill and novelty works at this site. A waterwheel powered by an artesian well created electricity for the mill.

In 1925, the Harbor City Hotel was built here. Estimated cost of the building was $150,000. The name was changed to Oleanders Hotel a few years later and eventually it became known at the imperial hotel. In the 1970's it was known as River House. The aging building was razed in 1991.
