Johnnie Brown Tombstone

There are only two marked graves in Palm Beach. They are side-by-side in a restaurant courtyard, just off fancy Worth Avenue. Neither belongs to a human being. The more famous of the admittedly obscure pair is Johnnie Brown, the Human Monkey. Johnnie Brown was the pet spider monkey of Addison Mizner, an eccentric Palm Beach fixture of the roaring twenties. Johnnie Brown would sit on one of Addison’s shoulders, a parrot on the other.

Gus' Baths

Jordahn opened Gus’ Baths at the east end of Worth Avenue, which he expanded to two floors, withshops downstairs and 16 apartments on the second floor. He added a boardwalk with three gazebos, three heated saltwater pools, and a tunnel to the beach. Gus’ Baths was the only bathing beach open year-round in Palm Beach and was popular with West Palm Beach residents.
