Publisher of Cape Gazette discusses the Queen Anne Victorian


“The Victorian at 210 Savannah for my 44 years in Lewes has always been a prominent part of the distinctive architecture in the heart of the city’s downtown. I’ve known it as the home of former Mayor Otis Smith and his wife, Hazell, and before that the home of the colorful and nationally prominent salvage diver known familiarly around town as Diver Johnson. With its commercial zoning, the house has been home to several notable businesses including Harvard Business Services in its earliest days and Ocean Retreat Day Spa. 210 Savannah is one of many unique structures in Lewes that span hundreds of years of architectural development starting with the Swedish log cabin from the 17th century in the historic complex all the way up to 21st century modern architecture and all styles in between.”
