History of Larelle House
Originally, Larelle House was a three-story residence constructed in 1908 by Nimrod Longley for his bride, Anne. Longley established himself as a town visionary and leader in the new community who played an extensive role in the early development of St. Petersburg. Nimrod and Anne lived in the house until Anne’s death at 74 years of age in 1915. Longley resided here for 4 additional years, until he rejoined Anne in 1919 at the age of 82. Guests may see Nimrod’s name engraved in the obelisk monument in Pioneer Park.
