The community of Indian Rocks began here in the Narrows over 100 years ago. Three of the earliest structures on the narrow beach strip can still be seen today, each one a unique treasure.
The Bie Boathouse, standing at this spot since it was built as Ulmer’s boathouse around 1911, has long been a landmark on the beaches. About a half mile south, facing the Gulf, is the former “handsome” summer home of Tampa cigar maker Val Antuono, built in 1915. And a few doors south is IRB’s oldest house, built in 1891, an outstanding example of an early beach cottage.
