Inscription.  The tenant house is a mystery. It could be older than DeBary Hall and might have belonged to settlers who sold Frederick deBary the core acreage for his retreat. Those owners lived on their land, but exactly where is not clear.

By 1882, civil engineer and surveyor D.D. Rogers was officially picturing the deBarys’ vacation estate. He showed DeBary Hall, a big fountain, a greenhouse, the stable, and laundry (later moved to become a caretaker’s home). On the road running to Enterprise he placed the “Quarters”—modest workers’ house.
