The Dolphin House
by Chris Lampe
While heading to the newest beach bar (by boat) on St. Thomas last week, my friend Mike did a close drive by of the Dolphin House, St. Thomas located in Estate Nazareth. Back in 2006, I lived in the caretakers cottage next to the old ruins. Seeing the property from the water for the first in at least a year, made me feel some nostalgia for the property. It reminded me of the old story behind the house. If you are unfamiliar with the history or the story about the old Dolphin House, you can read about it here, http://www.theguardian.com/

The property is now owned by Stateside developers. What will become of the property in the future is anybody’s guess. Whatever befalls the old dolphin house, it will always have a place in my heart for the story behind it & the history it holds.
