Goetz Brewing Company donated the money to purchase the building and the city matched the amount to adapt the private home into a public museum. After sixty years as a museum, the first floor of the building is being restored to its Victorian grandeur. (Submitted on September 17, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
