Widows Walk

October 24th, 2017 by Piper Smith

A widow’s walk is also known as a Widow’s Watch. It is a small railed rooftop platform frequently found on 19th-century North American coastal houses. They are a common sight to see on Original Conch Houses built during the Wrecking Era.

Some properties in Key West with a widow’s walk include:

The Curry Mansion, Sarabeth’s, John Lowe Jr. House, Island City House.

Replica Doll House of the Lowe House on Southard St.
