The Angler’s Lodge in Anna Maria was moved to The Historic Green Village on Pine Avenue by Gagne Construction. The Lodge was donated to the Anna Maria Preservation Trust to ensure that it was protected and would become part of the legacy of the City of Anna Maria.
The Angler’s Lodge was built by Mr. and Mrs. Wood in 1913. The Woods named their Anna Maria Island home ‘Thelma by the Sea’ after their daughter, a beautiful young model who was on the very first Anna Maria Island brochure.
The move started Monday morning May 23rd 2011, and was a big deal. Lizzie Vann Thrasher said moving the Angler’s Lodge to the village is a “major task, but we think it’s worth every effort to ensure that it remains part of Anna Maria’s future history.”
