Seagate, The Crosley Estate

Just north of the Sarasota County line on the North Trail, hidden down a long driveway to the bay, is a mansion designed in the Mediterranean style known as Seagate. Seagate (or the Crosley Mansion) is one of the several notable mansions (Ca'd'Zan, Edson Keith House, Charles Ringling Estate) that were built during what was called the Gulf Coast Golden Age. The photograph above is of the bayfront side and gives an example of the grandeur of the estate. Built by Cincinnati industrialist Powell Crosley Jr. in 1929, the 11,000-square-foot mansion has 21 rooms and seven full bathrooms. Sarasota building contractor Paul W. Bergman completed construction in 135 days at a cost of $350,000.

Along with the construction of the mansion, Powell Crosley built a seawall and a yacht basin that extended nearly 600 feet along the bay and included a mooring area for his seaplane and a 25-foot-by-35-foot terrazzo swimming pool fed by an artesian well. Powell Crosley Jr, and his wife, Gwendolyn, lived at Seagate during the winter seasons from 1929 to 1939. After her death in 1939, the Crosley family occasionally used the mansion.

Powell Crosley was a promoter, businessman and industrialist who had the knack of transforming ideas into reality. Between 1900 and 1940, in the field of radio, Crosley generated the first automobile radio, the first push-button radio and the world's most powerful radio station. Other items included one of the first mail-order specialty companies, the first portable freezer, the patent for shelves in the doors of refrigerators and freezers, the first lights on a major league baseball field and the first mass-produced small economy car.

During World War II, an officers' club occupied the mansion. After the war, in 1947, the D. & D. Corporation purchased the residence from Powell Crosley Jr. In 1948, Freeman H. Horton purchased Seagate and its contents from the D. & D. Corporation. Freeman Horton was a prominent civil engineer, having designed several notable structures in the region such as the original Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the Sarasota/Bradenton Airport, the Tampa Bayshore Seawall and the Sebring Airbase. The Horton family occupied Seagate from 1948 to 1977. Between 1977 and 1982, the Horton family leased the Estate, and it remained in family ownership until 1982.

SeaGate Yacht Club History

The SeaGate Yacht Club was conceived and formed at Avalon, Santa Catalina Island, on Saturday, October 30, 1976. Charter members were Sandy and Dewey Rudolph, Yvonne and Pat Kelley, Rusty and Chuck Strigl, Elsie and John Kohler, and Olive and Gordon Bishop. The purpose of the Club was friendship and boating opportunities.

By February 1977, four meetings had taken place and the Club had grown to 50 members. Membership was made open to anyone who resided in SeaGate. A letter to the property owners' board resulted in approval of the SeaGate Yacht Club. From that time on, meetings have been held in the SeaGate Clubhouse.

The Club is open to both residents and non-residents of SeaGate. Non-resident membership is limited to 40% of the resident membership, according to the current bylaws.

The Club is now in its 43rd year. Newsletters and web pages over these past years reflect many enjoyable social events and exciting boating adventures. The social calendar has grown to provide activities in each month of the year. Board meetings are held monthly, and a general membership meeting is held in October of each year.

The web site was initiated by Gene Busby during his term of office. The URL for the web site is www.seagateyachtclub.com. Any suggestions or ideas for the web site should be addressed to the current Webmaster. The position of Webmaster was made a board position by Commodore Jim Woods.

Membership in the Southern California Yachting Association (SCYA) was initiated by Tom McKnew prior to his term as Commodore. Interim status in the Southern California Yachting Association occurred during Tom's term.

At the end of Jim Wood's 2003 term as Commodore, membership stood at 120 families. During this year a By-Laws Committee was formed to review and update our by-laws. Very few changes were made attesting to the forward thinking of our founding fathers. SGYC membership in the SCYA was moved from interim to permanent associate status by vote of the SCYA membership.

In 2011 all of the club house events were well attended and membership reached 150 with 269 individual members headed by Commodore Les Kelly. There were numerous fun events, but the two that stand out were the 35th Anniversary Party and Opening Day which were attended by our co-founding Commodore, Dewey Rudolph and First Mate Sandy, and record numbers of members! The year ended with a huge rush when SeaGate YC won Sweepstakes in the annual Huntington Harbour Boat Parade for only the second time in its history. The design was based on the creative efforts of Sandy Atherton and Bob McCormick, the float was constructed by many SGYC members and hosted on Robin and Jean Clark’s boat the Fin-Tastic!

In 2014 our membership reached 163 with total individual members of 298 under the term of Commodore Josef Davydovits. Opening Day reached a new high for the club as the attendance was augmented by dignitaries being part of the ceremony such as the Mayor of Huntington Beach (Matthew Harper), Coast Guard Auxiliary Commander, uniformed Fireman and a ceremonial Color Guard. SGYC sponsored and organized the first charity boat parade with sister club, American Legion YC for the Orange County Downs Syndrome Association children. In 2014 we also added another convenience for our membership by having the option to pay the events with PayPal. Staff Commodores Josef Davydovits and Ray Nagele were instrumental in adding this feature for the club.

The Shore Blog

The history of Sea Isle City is interesting. For over 2000 years the Leni-Lenape Indians lived in the area that would later become New Jersey. They came to the coast to fish and gather quahog shells from the beach. They made beads from the shells called “wampum” which was used as currency.

In the 17th century, the Dutch and Swedes established the first European settlements on the east coast, which ultimately fell under English rule. King Charles II granted the land between New England and Maryland as a proprietary colony to his brother, the Duke of York. Through a series of grants and purchases, the land was divided and came under ownership of a group of Quakers called the West Jersey Proprietors – one of whom was William Penn, considered the founder of Pennsylvania.

Joseph Ludlam bought the land from the Quaker group in 1692 and named the island after himself. He then divided it into three sections and sold the southern section to John Townsend who named it Townsend’s Inlet.

Ludlam used the island to stock cattle and sheep. Mainlanders would visit the island to hunt, fish and engage in other recreational activities, but no permanent settlements would be established on the island for nearly two centuries. It is believed that pirates would stop at the island while sailing up the Jersey coast during this time, as evidenced by the type of pistols found during those early years.

Charles Kline Landis purchased Ludlam Island in 1880 with the intention of creating a beautiful seaside resort. Inspired by a trip to Venice, Landis sought to recreate a similar community. He renamed the Island “Sea Isle City” and had waterways and canals dug to create Venice-like waterways that still exist today on the Intercoastal Waterway. Ludlam effectively marketed the island as both a place to come for a visit and a place in which to live.

A bustling fishing industry developed and shacks were built to house fishermen overnight. Before long, they began bringing their families and staying more permanently on the island. Other full-time residents joined them and soon churches, restaurants and stores were established. In 1882, Sea Isle City was incorporated as a borough and in 1907 officially became a City. By the late 1880s, hundreds of people resided in Sea Isle full time.

By 1882, the first rail lines had been constructed to connect the island to the mainland. The West Jersey and Seashore Railroad entered Sea Isle and in 1884 was extended to Corson’s Inlet and Ocean City. In 1893, the Reading Railroad ran into Corson’s Inlet where Twistie’s now exists, but this line was abandoned in 1925. The two railroads merged all their South Jersey operations in 1933, after which the West Jersey and Seashore Railroad closed its operations into Sea Isle. Visitors to Ludlam Island thereafter took the Reading line from Ocean City into Strathmere until all train operations to Sea Isle and Strathmere ceased in 1942.

Many families flocked to the beach in the summertime, especially on Sundays. They would often bring their lunches in shoe boxes, which gave rise to the term “Shoobies”. It originated as a derogatory term for two reasons: first, the shoe box-toting visitors brought their lunches so that they wouldn’t have to buy food, thereby depriving local establishment owners of revenue. Second, these inland visitors were not always accustomed to the environment, including the dangers of the ocean, beach etiquette and other local customs so they were looked down upon by residents. Today, the term “Shoobie” is still used to describe someone who visits (but doesn’t live in) the coastal towns of South Jersey.

To provide a central place for activities for both visitors and residents, the Excursion House was built in 1882. It housed a restaurant, stores, a skating rink and a public second floor terrace. It remained the main hub of activity for the newly forming town until it was destroyed in the storm of 1962.

In 1887, a trolley system referred to as “horse cars” began operating along Pleasure Railroad and ran from Sea Isle to Townsends Inlet. As the name suggests, these cars were led by horses that would transport people between the train station and the island’s hotels. This route was later extended to Corson’s Inlet, allowing riders to go from the northern end of Ludlam Island to the south end.

A second trolley service, this one led by mules, was added along the route that is now Landis Avenue. While neither of these transport systems were traditional trolleys as we know them today, in 1904 an electric trolley replaced the animal-operated system along Landis Avenue.

In 1917 the trolley system was decommissioned, due to the growing popularity of motor cars and the decline in popularity and upkeep of the trolley system, thus ending an era. In 2010, during repaving of Landis Avenue, workers unearthed part of the trolley tracks that once existed. Today, a new Jitney service operates along Landis Avenue, providing riders with a safe way to visit bars and restaurants in Sea Isle, Townsends Inlet and Strathmere.

The oldest building in Sea Isle City that remains from this era is The Colonnade Inn, a Victorian building with a huge wrap-around porch located on the corner of 46th Street and Landis Avenue. Built in 1883 and restored in 2004, the Colonnade still operates as a hotel with privately owned rooms and apartments available for rent on a daily or weekly basis.

Also remaining is the Braca Building. Built in the early 1900s and serving as a theatre back then, the building now houses James Candy, a popular place to purchase sweet seashore souvenirs after a trip to Sea Isle.

By the end of the century, electricity lit the streets and buildings and there were over 30 hotels, railways, a school and two churches. Sea Isle had grown to both a place to live and a vacation destination.

In the mid-1930s, when automobiles became more prolific, rail service to the island went by the wayside. Having a car meant that visitors could travel to more remote areas of the island, and they were not geographically limited to the area around the train station. As a result, hotels once popular because of their proximity to the trains became less popular in favor of smaller, more remote cottages and boarding houses that were being built throughout the island.

Due to a steel shortage during the Second World War, Sea Isle City tore up the railroad that remained in the area so that it could be used as scrap metal. As a result, the path where the railroad used to run through town became a popular path for people to take walks and ride their bikes. This pathway would later become Pleasure Ave.

Sea Isle was once home to a wooden boardwalk that was built and destroyed by storms several times. In 1962 a nor’easter storm ravaged the town, destroying buildings and bringing the old wooden boardwalk to a final end. Once lined on both sides with shops, restaurants, arcades, hotels, a dance hall, a bath house and a theater, Sea Isle’s boardwalk was a bustling recreational and social meeting place. After it was destroyed, a paved pathway was built in its place. The Promenade, as it is now called, runs 1.5 miles from 29th Street to 57th Street. Construction of buildings was limited to the west side of the Promenade to allow for the creation of a dune line on the eastern side, in hopes that the town would be spared from future storms coming ashore.

The Promenade once featured a block-wide amusement park at 32nd Street called Fun City. It offered rides and carnival games until it closed in 2000 when the land was sold for the development of homes. A movement to expand the Promenade to the entire length of the island to reduce pedestrian and cyclist traffic on the streets was defeated in 2016 by the concern of residents and the environmental impact it would have on the dunes.

In the 20th century, Sea Isle City continued to flourish as a residential and resort town. However, between 2000 and 2010, the population of Sea Isle’s full time year-round residents dropped, as it did in other coastal towns in South Jersey. Economics and the climate are two reasons cited for this decline in the permanent population.

The sharp rise in property values along the shore in recent years now prohibits many families from buying property here because they simply can’t afford it. Instead, people who can afford to buy second homes are purchasing properties but not living here full-time themselves. It is not uncommon for second home-owners to purchase an older home in Sea Isle and have it demolished so that it can be replaced with a larger, taller more contemporary home. This also then creates a decline in school-aged populations, and as a result many small school districts such as Sea Isle’s have closed. School children are now bussed to Ocean City’s schools or attend private schools elsewhere. Climate change has given rise to super storms such as Sandy and Jonas, which both destroyed many homes and businesses along the Jersey coast. Rising insurance rates also cause an economic impact to people who wish to live or open a business here.
Sea Isle, like other coastal South Jersey towns, will continue to change, grow and develop in one way or another, as it has throughout history. Despite the many changes this little town has seen, including the impact of several devastating storms, Sea Isle City continues to thrive as the city that won’t quit.

A Harbor Full of History and Sea Lore on Cape Cod

HYANNIS, midway up the southern shore of Cape Cod, is often regarded as the departure point for ferries to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, or as a way station to seaside hamlets farther up the cape. But its lively harbor, Kennedy mystique and quirky family tours make Hyannis an enjoyable, accessible day trip in its own right, especially with kids in tow.

Settled in 1639 by English farmers turned fishermen, Hyannis is, figuratively and literally, defined by the sea. The salty air beckons. A loud, prolonged horn announces the ferry. Boisterous families queue up to board a charter boat for an afternoon of deep-sea fishing, while well-tailored couples mosey around artists’ sheds at the harbor.

The salty aroma also lures people into the Cape Cod Potato Chips factory.

“I liked seeing the chips come out of the machines,” said Lindsay Thornton, 7, who was visiting this summer from the Albany area with her parents, Kathy and Daniel. Lindsay’s face was pressed into the windows offering a glimpse into a day in the life of a potato chip. “Any time there are potato chips in her life, it’s just a plus,” Ms. Thornton said.

On the self-guided tour, which lasts about 20 minutes, visitors watch from a long corridor as potatoes are washed, scrubbed, sliced and plunged into stainless-steel kettles filled with canola oil for seven minutes of cooking that leaves them crispy and golden. A stainless-steel device that looks like a cotton candy machine with a clear dome spins off excess oil, and the chips are salted, seasoned and packed for shipping. (Potato peels and rejected chips are sent off to be used as animal feed.)

“I was surprised by how many potatoes are used to make a bag of potato chips,” Mrs. Thornton said.

After the tour, every visitor gets a small bag of chips. But Lindsay’s parents splurged on a shovel-and-pail set filled with chips for her.

While the Cape Cod chips have their following, it is the Kennedy family that put this seaside village on the world radar. The halcyon days for Hyannis might have been the early 1960’s when President John F. Kennedy set up a summer White House, but the Kennedy aura still permeates the town. Various Kennedys, including Senator Edward M. Kennedy, have homes in Hyannisport, an enclave of houses adjacent to Hyannis and overlooking Hyannis Harbor. What is known as the Kennedy compound is actually a cluster of three private clapboard houses, two of them owned by Senator Kennedy and the other by Ethel Kennedy. “They mingle in town,” said Joanne Wiseman, the manager of the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum. She confirmed that the senator visited the museum not long ago with a group of British Harvard students.

Aside from a personal invitation, the only socially acceptable way to see the Kennedy residences is from the water. You’ll hear Kennedy stories as well as facts about maritime history on the harbor tours that are offered throughout the summer.

“If you look off port, or left side, you can see Hyannis Marina,” the tour guide announces. “The marina can accommodate eight megayachts, those more than 100 feet long.” President Kennedy docked his boat, the Honey Fitz, there.

Cruising through the inner harbor, you’ll also see commercial scallop boats and private fishing vessels with names like Constant Supervision. At the mouth of the harbor is the Lewis Bay Light, one of 12 remaining lighthouses on the cape. The narrated cruise takes you into Nantucket Sound past the Hyannis Yacht Club and Kalmus Beach and culminates amid sailboats in Hyannis Harbor, 100 yards out from the Kennedy homes.

THE museum devoted to President Kennedy’s time in Hyannis, renovated in 2003 and again in 2005, now encompasses five rooms of black-and-white pictures of the Kennedy family, along with campaign memorabilia and a video narrated by Walter Cronkite. Viewing the photos of the famous family is like discovering a stash of forgotten family albums in Grandma’s attic. Three smiling young brothers — John, Robert and Edward — walk on the beach on Thanksgiving, 1948. A relaxed President Kennedy steers a golf cart piled with nieces, nephews and other children. A delightful pair of 1963 photos shows Caroline Kennedy and Maria Shriver, both 6 years old, on the Honey Fitz, taking turns making silly faces for the camera.

And then in the last room, there’s a stunning oil portrait of John F. Kennedy Jr. — a sudden reminder of his death in waters not far from here in 1999. “That stops everyone in their tracks,” Mrs. Wiseman said.

Others who have met untimely fates are honored at the Cape Cod Maritime Museum, adjacent to Aselton Park near the harbor. To 17th- and 18th-century seamen, Cape Cod, the largest sandbar in the United States, was known as the “graveyard of ships.” From 1626 to the present there have been 3,000 known shipwrecks off Cape Cod and a handful of them, including the demise of the Sparrow-Hawk in 1626, are documented on a wall of the museum that holds a macabre fascination for many children.

Much of the museum is dedicated to “surfmen,” the intrepid crews that rescued shipwreck survivors. A 24-by-6-foot restored 1937 surf boat used to row out to sinking ships sits in the center of the main room. Beginning in 1807, lifeboat houses, essentially beachside shacks, were built and equipped with boats, life rafts and small cannons that the volunteer surfmen would use to fire ropes to shipwreck survivors.

Children in danger of museum overload spring back to vibrancy with a harbor tour on the Cape Cod Duckmobile, a brightly colored amphibian craft that looks like a life-size, primary-colored bus with an awning. Self-conscious parents and sticky-faced kids waited anxiously to board from Main Street one Saturday. Out on the water a half-hour later, and feeling less inhibited, the riders quacked to the passengers aboard the other tour boats.

“All ages enjoy the tour,” said Ginny Baukus, a Duckmobile employee. “We get a lot of seniors and red-hat ladies aboard.”

And there are plenty of options for food. Along Main Street, sandwiched among establishments selling flip-flops, souvenirs and opportunities to play miniature golf, hungry families can find restaurants and stands selling Italian dinners, fish and chips, pizza and, of course, ice cream.
