Mary's Chapel at Spanish Point
In the early 1900s the Webb family sold parcels of the homestead to new settlers. All members of the original pioneer Webb family are buried in the Pioneer Cemetery next to Mary's Chapel except for Jack Webb who had moved to California. The original Mary's Chapel was built at the request of family members of Mary Sherrill who stayed at Webb's Winter Resort and sadly died at a very young age. The chapel was reconstructed in 1986, with the original stained glass windows and bronze bell.
Florida owes its success to people like John Webb and his intrepid family who braved heat, humidity, insects, illness, fires, and risk of hurricanes to settle and build up the gulf coast region. Historic Spanish Point is proud of this aspect of our story and invites you to experience it first hand by strolling through the 30-acres of nature and gardens, and by engaging yourself in the past by touring the historic buildings.
