THE STORY OF THE ALGIERS

The story of the Algiers harkens back to a time when our island’s growing tourist industry was emerging with simple seaside fun and the thrill of beautiful seashells.

Lathrop and Helen Brown loved coming to Sanibel. They brought the Mississippi ferryboat Algiers down from New Orleans and converted it into a luxurious houseboat, to be moored in a small channel they created on the Gulf. Alas, fate intervened and all that remains today is Algiers Lane and the romantic legend of a couple in love and their dream to live uniquely on Sanibel Island.
