Mercedes Club last Sunday did a fun trip to the Country Seminole Inn located in
Indiantown FL. It is about a 45-minute
drive from Jupiter. Part of the fun day involved a drive west on a designated scenic highway with beautiful 100 year old native trees forming an almost tunnel look. There are parts of Florida that are amazing beautiful that does not involve the wearing of mouse ears.
The Seminole Country Inn with its pleasant surroundings, brings back a sense from old Florida. It was built in 1926 and was to be the focal point for a newly created community / rail center that never happened. The owner/builder’s niece was Wallis Warfield Simpson, later the Duchess of Windsor, who was a frequent and its most famous guest.
Today Indiantown is a small country village with a much history. As a group my Mercedes club enjoyed the feel and look of the past, including a country lunch buffet, ghost stories, and amazing wall murals depicting the native Seminole tribe's history. The Inn is on the National Register of Historic Places.
About 20 years ago I spent the night there with a friend that was conducting a seminar at a nearby FLP Power Plant. No Ghost, but a lot of rustic country charm that remains to this day.
