I am not sure of the history of Ila "The Turtle Lady" house other than many said it was of significant historical significance on the Island. It certainly has a modernist or "Bauhaus" style described by its rampant cubism, as opposed to other "Tiki" or more conventional beach house styles. The SPI Historical Committee will be working to fill in all these gaps about a lady who not only started the effort to save sea turtles but also was an aviator and owned her own amphibious craft to commute to the mainland. I will continue to collect more historical sites but simply could not proceed without a testimonial to this wonderful lady.

Update on Januery 2, 2007: please cick here for more about Ila.
