1928 photo of Glenn Curtiss’s Hotel Country Club on The Parkway(now Curtiss Parkway) in Country Club Estates. Construction began by New York developers on the Pueblo Hotel in 1927. When the developers defaulted Glenn Curtiss took over and completed the construction. Curtiss named it Hotel Country Club and had the formal opening in January of 1928. In 1930 it was sold to wellness expert and Corn Flake King Dr. John Harvey Kellogg who renamed it Battle Creek Sanatorium. In later years it became known as the Miami Springs Spa, Fair Havens Nursing Home, and now Miami Springs Nursing & Rehab Center. An audio visual theatrical presentation including a recreation of one of the rooms in this historic structure can be seen at the Miami Springs Historical Society Museum.
