When Charles Peacock and son Alfred began building Peacock Inn on this site in 1882 there was no other hotel between Key West and Lake Worth. The Hotel was called Bay View House at first and this area was called Jack´s Bight before it was called Coconut Grove.

John W. Frow acquired the Peacock Inn land from the original patentee, Edmund D.

Beasley, in 1877 and deeded it to Charles Peacock in 1884.

Many famous tourists visited Peacock Inn. Henry M. Flagler called Mrs. Charles Peacock the mother of Coconut Grove.
