Prep work has begun to relocate the historic home of Dr. Josie Rogers, Daytona Beach’s first woman doctor and mayor. In preparation of the move, Manatee Island has been temporarily closed and will remain closed until the home has been relocated. The home, built in 1878 by Dr. Rogers’ father, will be moved about 800 feet north of its current location in Riverfront Park. The contractor will support and carefully lift the two-story structure with specialized equipment. A new foundation will be recreated and electrical and utility service connections will be made at the final destination. Road closures along Beach Street are not planned because the home will be moved within the park.
