The Buccaneer  
Resort in Christiansted, Virgin Islands US  
Available on:

Historic Hotel

Year built: 1653
What is the history of the property?
The first building on Estate Shoys, where The Buccaneer is located, was constructed by Charles Martel, a Knight of Malta, all the way back in 1653. In 1733, when the Danes bought the island of St. Croix, their Governor von Prock built his home on the estate. He erected the Sugar Mill that still stands on site. The next owner was Michael Shoy, for whom the estate is named, and he began growing cotton there. After that came the Heyliger Company and its cattle ranch. The Armstrong family bought that ranch in 1922 and in 1947 opened The Buccaneer as a hotel with 11 rooms. It was the first hotel on the island to be built and operated by an island family. Now, nearly 75 years later, the resort is the oldest family-owned resort in the entire Caribbean. Elizabeth Armstrong is the third generation of her family to own and run the property.
What was the era and/or the architectural style in which the property was built?
The property has grown and expanded over the years, and the architecture of each element reflects the era in which it was built. A significant piece of history and architecture is the old Sugar Mill, which stands near the main building and which is a popular site for weddings and special, customized private dinners.
Is the property surrounded by other historic buildings?
The Buccaneer is located about five minutes' drive from downtown Christiansted, which is brimming with history. The town has ties to the stories of all the people who made their homes here and nations that claimed St. Croix as theirs over the years. The most famous historic figure with ties to the area is Alexander Hamilton.
Has restoration work taken place?
Yes, over the years, restoration has taken place simply to keep buildings in good working order. For example, the Sugar Mill needs some periodic rehab. However, there has not be significant restoration.
Are there any elements of particular historical importance at the building?
Again, the Sugar Mill is a fan favorite among guests, though you can find mills all over the island. It's a point of historic interest right on property and guests are fascinated by it. In non-COVID times, the hotel offers a history tour and the Sugar Mill is a highlight. The hotel's Lounge features a mural called "Fighting Ships" by noteworthy artist Stanley Stubenberg.
Are there any important guests or previous owners worth mentioning?
The first governor of the island, Governor von Prock, lived here. The resort has hosted celebrity guests over the years and continues to do so.

Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac  
Hotel in Quebec City, Canada  
Available on:

Historic Hotel

In 1944, this beautiful monolith was the main conference centre of Quebec Conferences during the World War II. Deeply inspired by architecture in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, the New Yorker architect Bruce Price designed Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac for the Quebec City. Its name was derived from the flamboyant French governor around 1672, Louis de Buade, the Fairmont boasts a strong French and Quebecois pride. Within its 300 year expansive history and fame, it is to no one's surprise that notable personalities such as Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt, King George VI, Queen Elizabeth and Princess Grace of Monaco were cared for within its walls.
Year built: 1893
What is the history of the property?
For more than a century, Québec City’s Fairmont Le Château Frontenac has been the true-life castle of many people’s dreams… Everyone - young and old, music and film stars, sports personalities and political figures - enjoys discovering Fairmont Le Château Frontenac and delights in returning again and again.
After Les Châteaux Saint Louis and Haldimand, residences of the French and English governors for over two centuries, Cape Diamond had lost its prestige and successive plans for a grand hotel in Québec City never materialized.
By the late 19th century, William Van Horne, President of Canadian Pacific Railways (C.P.R.), had raised enough funds to build the ideal stopover for C.P.R. travellers, Le Château Frontenac. Van Horne retained the services of the New York architect Bruce Price, who had already designed Montréal’s Windsor Station and who, incidentally, was the father of the American writer Emily Post. Drawing on the architectural styles of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, Price immortalized the history of the two great powers that had occupied Québec City’s highest promontory.
On December 18, 1893 the first wing of Fairmont Le Château Frontenac was inaugurated. it had 170 rooms, 93 of which had bathrooms and fireplaces, remarkable luxuries at the time. The Hotel also included three magnificent suites—the Habitant, the Chinoise and the Hollandaise.
Several extensions followed until 1993 to build the hotel as it stands today with its 610 rooms, spread over 18 floors. The citadel wing was built in 1899, followed by the Mont-Carmel wing in 1908. The Saint-Louis wing and the central tower, whose look resembles the dungeons of medieval castles, were built between 1920 and 1924. Following a fire in 1926, an original section of the hotel was reconstructed from architect price's original plans. A new expansion phase was completed in June 1993 with the Claude-Pratte wing, which offers Château Frontenac guests an indoor pool, a fitness center and a magnificent outdoor terrace.
Today, Fairmont le Château Frontenac rises even more proudly on cap diamant, always ready to receive its guests from around the world in a pleasant, elegant and refined atmosphere.
What was the era and/or the architectural style in which the property was built?
A blend of Middle Ages and Renaissance architecture.
The hotel was inspired by the chateaux of the Loire Valley.
Is the property surrounded by other historic buildings?
Yes, it is in the heart of Old Quebec, a UNESCO world-heritage site.
Has restoration work taken place?
yes, in 2014
Are there any elements of particular historical importance at the building?
The hotel has many painted ceilings and carved elements.
Are there any important guests or previous owners worth mentioning?
A ROYAL CASTLE
The Château Frontenac is proud to have welcomed King George VI and Queen Elizabeth in 1939. A luxurious suite has also been designated in honor of the official visits of Queen Elizabeth II and his Excellency the Duke of Edinburgh. T-he Princess Grace of Monaco and Prince Rainier III occupied a suite of the Château during their presidency of the Queen’s Ball at the Quebec Winter Carnival in February 1969. For the highest honor of the Château Frontenac, many other royalty members have visited the Quebec castle, including Prince Andrew and Lady Sarah Ferguson of England.
FRONTENAC: HOST OF CRUCIAL POLITICAL MEETINGS
In August of 1943 and again in September of 1944, Le Château Frontenac became the center of the Quebec Conferences of World War II involving U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King. The heads of the Allies held talks that proved decisive to prosecuting the war to a successful conclusion. The Château has been the host of many other American and Canadian political figures over the years: Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Pierre Eliott Trudeau,
Brian Mulroney, and many more. Fairmont Le Château Frontenac is also proud to have hosted some of the world’s most known political personalities including Charles De Gaulle, president of the French Republic, Chiang-Kai-Shek from China, and François Mitterrand, from France are some of the legendary guests of the Quebec castle.

Lanes Privateer Inn
Lanes Privateer Inn  
Inn in Liverpool, Canada  
Available on:

Historic Accommodation

Year built: 1798
What is the history of the property?
Politician and sea captain Joseph Barss Sr. built his family home in 1798. With three-storeys, four rooms per floor, and a fireplace in every room, the Barss home was one of the largest in Liverpool. It still stands today and is part of Lane’s Privateer Inn, with original wooden beams found in front desk reception, the gourmet shop, and the corridor leading to the restaurant/pub.

Inheriting the family home from his father, Captain Joseph Barss Jr. lived in the Barss mansion with his wife Olivia and nine children until after the War of 1812. Often considered one of the most successful and well-known privateers, Barss captained the Liverpool Packet, capturing at least 50 enemy vessels. In 1813, following battle with an American ship that far out-sized and out-gunned them, Barss surrendered the Packet. After several months of harsh imprisonment, Barss was released on the condition he never command another privateer vessel. After the war, Barss settled in Kentville, NS. He passed away August 3, 1824, and is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery (Kentville).
A fantastic exhibit on Barss, Privateering, and a replica of the Liverpool Packet are on display at the Queens County Museum here in Liverpool. You can climb aboard the Packet and learn all there is to know about Privateering in Liverpool.
Are there any important guests or previous owners worth mentioning?
In 1947 Edgar and Helen Lane purchased a neglected rooming house with an eight hole outhouse in the backyard. This building was the former Barss mansion on Bristol Avenue.

The building was renovated to include a family apartment and the largest furniture store on the South Shore, which was located on the first floor. Folks crowded Bristol Ave. to catch a glimpse of I Love Lucy or Ed Sullivan on the snowy television in the front windows while Ed and son Ron wrestled with the giant antennae on the roof.

The Lanes have always been a family of entrepreneurs and also opened a beauty salon, jewellery store, gift shop and apartments in the old Barss Mansion.

In 1962, the Lanes decided to shift business models. They closed the furniture store and expanded the existing structure, adding hotel rooms, a restaurant, banquet room, and coffee shop.

Son, Ron Lane and his growing family relocated from Whitehorse to help with the ever-increasing family business. For many years, Ron ran the business while raising nine children with his beloved wife Carol. He also involved himself in local politics; Ron was mayor of Liverpool from 1985-96. Ron was a founder of Privateer Days which takes place every June in Liverpool.

The third generation, Ron and Carol's children Susan and Terry worked together to manage Lane’s Privateer Inn. Snug Harbour Books opened in 1994 and Snug Harbour Gourmet Shop in 1998.

Kehoe House, Historic Inns of Savannah Collection  
Bed & Breakfast in Savannah GA, United States  
Available on:

Historic Accommodation

Year built: 1892
What is the history of the property?
In 1868, William Kehoe, an Irish immigrant, married Anne Flood and the two quickly started a family. Their first address, located on Columbia Square, was 130 Habersham Street. As his business and family grew, Kehoe built a larger, more stately home. He liked the Historic District so much that he purchased the southern half of the lot, located diagonally across the street, for $950. The Kehoe House was designed by DeWitt Bruyn, and was built at the cost of $25,000. The home was completed in May of 1892, whereupon Mr. and Mrs. Kehoe and their 10 children moved into their new home. Mr. Kehoe's heirs sold the house in 1930. In the 30 years following the sale, the property was used as a boarding house, funeral parlor, and held for a time by Alabama and New York Jets football star, Joe Namath. In 1990, Mr. Namath sold the property, and after a two-year renovation, the property opened as a historic bed and breakfast inn aptly named The William Kehoe House. The property was sold again in 2003, and purchased by its current owner, HLC Hotels, in May of 2007.
What was the era and/or the architectural style in which the property was built?
The Kehoe House was designed by DeWitt Bruyn in a Queen Anne Revival style, and was built at the cost of $25,000. Mr. Kehoe, having owned the most successful iron foundry in Savannah at the time, incorporated a lot of cast iron detailing into the home including verandas, window treatments, fencing, and ceiling medallions.
Is the property surrounded by other historic buildings?
The Kehoe House stands almost centered in the Historic District of Savannah which was founded and established by James Oglethorpe in 1733. It sits on Columbia Square next to the Davenport House which wouldv'e been torn down in the early 1900's by the new owners of the Kehoe House, the Goettes whom wanted to turn it into a parking lot for their funeral parlor. This sparked a movement between a group of individuals which lead to the Historic Savannah Foundation being formed.
Has restoration work taken place?
Having changed hands quite a few times over the years, there have been some modifications made to the house. When it was remodeled into an inn, each guest room was given a private bathroom and temperature controls. Most of the fire places are no longer usable except for the three located on the main floor. We do also have an elevator to help guests.
Are there any elements of particular historical importance at the building?
All covered verandas show the signature taint blue paint on the ceilings to ward off evil. The two fireplaces in the double parlor also feature medallions depicting and angel carrying two children up to heaven which were put in by Mr. Kehoe when the house was built.
Are there any important guests or previous owners worth mentioning?
The house was held for a time by Alabama and New York Jets football star, Joe Namath. In 1990, Mr. Namath sold the property.
Are there any significant events that took place at the property in the past?
During it's time as a funeral parlor it hosted many viewings including the service of Florence Martus who is more often known as the waving girl of Savannah.
Has the property received any certifications for its historical status?
The Kehoe House's excellence has earned numerous prestigious accolades, including:
