THE RUMPORIUM WAS A TOURIST DESTINATION HOSTING UP TO 1,200 VISITORS A DAY WHEN THE CRUISE SHIPS WERE IN PORT.Located in the Opportunity Zone. Lavalette House was built for a French sea captain by an Italian architect using Spanish motifs . Alexander Lavalette's townhouse, now know as 1829, is one of the largest residences in King's quarter including hand painted Moroccan tiles, a stained glass window by William Comfort Tiffany called In Search of the Promised Land. The historical kitchen which was turned into a bar is unusual in that it was built inside the main house. The house was a private residence until 1900 when it opened as a hotel. Very famous people came there to play Backgammon and enjoy the specially crafted cocktails and gourmet meals,

Supplements: Upper bedrooms were destroyed in the last hurricane but were allowed previously and the second floor now used as a Rumporium were historically bedrooms so this property has the potential to be reconfigured on the interior but the exterior must stay within the historic preservation guidelines. FANOUS PEOPLE WHO FREQUENTED 1829 WERE ROBERT LUDLUM, ROBERT PLANT, ADNON KHASHOGGI, JOHN PATRICK,FARAH PAHLAVI, GENE GUTOWSKI, VICTOR BORGE,LEONARD BERNSTEIN, MAMA CASS, MARIA CALLAS, OLIVE LEEDS, HORST BULOW AND MANY MORE.
