Regarding Lua Curtiss House II.
Featured in the Country Club Estates' promotional brochure, 150 Hunting Lodge was Mrs. Lua Curtiss', Glenn H. Curtiss' mother, second residence in the Country Club Estates or Miami Springs development. Formerly Mrs. Curtiss had lived at 85 Deer Run (also included in the Miami Springs thematic group) but, being unhappy with that residence, had her son build her a larger house at 150 Hunting Lodge. The building was one of the larger in the development and was constructed on one of the highest priced lots. Evidence suggests that Hampton and Ehman, locally well-known architects, may have designed the building. Sometime after Glenn Curtiss' death in 1930, his mother moved out.
