Item Description

Waldo Sexton left his mark on Vero Beach as developer of The Ocean Grill, The Driftwood Inn, Szechuan Palace, McKee Jungle Gardens, and Waldo's Mountain. You and five guests will explore his original historic homestead with your special guides Mark and Hildie Tripson (Sexton family members) to discover the true beauty of this unique property. Refreshments provided! Waldo E. Sexton broke ground here in 1911. Section by section the main house was built initially for himself and his family. The rustic driftwood inspired house was built in the 1940s to accommodate his daughter Barbara and her new husband, John Tripson. Tied together by a jungle and whimsical sidewalk, the two historic homes have become an ode to Waldo's love for large, rough wood and rustic construction. A priceless experience to be sure!

Donated by: The Tripson Family
