Hotel Punta Gorda Mural Depicting Famous Visitors

Visitors have always come to Punta Gorda during the winter months largely between January and April.  The Hotel Punta Gorda which opened in 1886 coincident with the railroad terminating here welcomed many during the Winter months.  Above depicted were from the left Clarence Darrow, Henry Ford, Dan Beard, Thomas Edison, Patty Berg, Henry Firestone and Andrew Mellon.  There is some question as to whether Edison actually stayed in the hotel.
