Inscription. This House, also owned by the Grant family, was never lived in as a family home. It always was rented out primarily to the managers and employees of Cable and Wireless prior to the building of the Cable & Wireless houses on the site of Mr. B.C. Frith's House, which was called Palm Grove. Mr. Finbar S. Dempsey, who rented the whole building in 1971, set up the first formal legal practice on Grand Turk on the first floor, where he remained for the next 15 years. The second floor was rented out to one of his associates. (Marker Number 23.)
