Driving through the orange groves, we approach Cody Villa.
Mute witness to the everchanging landscape, this sinkhole opened up recently.
This is Lindus and Amelia's son, Frank Cody's house.
This is their son, Arthur's "Mansion."
This is the Homestead House, where Lindus and Amelia lived.
Margaret and Jim welcome us into their home at Arthur's Mansion.
Margaret has thoughtfully laid out some family relics for us to see.
These arrowheads remind us that the Codys were not the first occupants of this land.
Buffalo Bill and Lindus were first cousins, don't you see a family resemblemce?
The family enthusiastically attended the Wild West at Cousin Will's expense.
Each of Lindus and Amelia's children were educated to develop their talents.
This dollhouse shows the love and care for children so evident in Lindus and Amelia's Cody family.
The family exchanged weekly letters to keep in touch while apart.
This display features pictures of Frank's house and Cody Cove.
After the tour, we all gathered around the table and had a delicious BBQ lunch.
Followed by a cake to celebrate Buffalo Bill's Birthday!
After a tour of the grounds and Frank's house,<br>we visited the Homestead House where George and Barbara live.
George's displays tell the story of Cody Villa's development from the 1890s into the 1950s.
As established real esteate developers, the Codys come to Frostproof and become citrus pioneers.
Despite setbacks, they prospered and so did Cody Villa.
Some of their children followed their faith to become missionaries to Japan and India.
Before we left, we gathered for a family portrait.
