Bowman and Dorothy "Dottie" PriceIn 1924, Bowman and Grace Price purchased property on Captiva from John R. Dickey. This property included a small cottage belonging to the Dickey children’s tutor, Reba Fitzpatrick. Then they built a cottage towards the Gulf to be just a little guest cottage for family and friends. Originally known as “Price’s Cottages,” it took the name ‘Tween Waters Inn at the suggestion of conservationist/cartoonist J.N. “Ding” Darling who, along with his wife Penny, first stayed at the inn in March 1936.
