About Francis Boardman Crowninshield

connection to Boca Grande, FL

First known as the Banana Patch, the Crowninshield studio was designed in 1927 by Albert Ely Ives for Francis B. Crowninshield and his wife, Louise du Pont Crowninshield. Avid tarpon fishing enthusiasts, the Crowninshields first bought a beachfront cottage before World War I. They were soon joined by other du Pont family members and Boston friends. Harry F. du Pont bought a house on Banyan Street. They were soon followed by other "beachfronters" who desired the anonymity the island's remoteness and isolation provided.
