Villa Dona Emilia

The Villa of Dona Emilia was the house of the wealthy Dona Emilia. Dona Emilia exported trees that were used to make hair dye in Europe, a very sought after resource. Her house, or rather mansion, is French; and not just in style. The villa was actually built in France and then later relocated to its current spot in 1895.


Unfortunately, time has not been kind to the villa. While it still stands, the effects of age on the structure are clear.
