Street entrance. On your left (west) is the 39-41 Patio de Leon building. Although little is known of the 39-41 Patio de Leon building located inside the Patio de Leon, it was built around 1926 and is unique in the area for its Oriental/Moorish stylistic influences. The building was designed with a symmetrical three-bay elevation, Moorish-influenced turned columns, decorative plastered horizontal banding, and a prominent central arch. It is suspected that the building may have been commissioned by George Sims, one of Fort Myers' prominent developers who oversaw the construction of several buildings around the same time period. Today it houses an art gallery and bar.
