Josset's House 1969
This private house was destroyed in the hurricane of 1980 and by the action of the sea. By that time the owner, Josset Legh, had returned to England after a forty-year romance with her tropical island paradise.
In 1937 Josset secured a long term lease for Pigeon Island. She relinquished her lease during the American occupation of World War II, but returned in 1947 to build a thriving yacht haven. Her hospitality, charm and flair have become part of Pigeon Island's legends.
