344 4th Street South – Ventnor

I have never lived in this particular apartment building but my sister did when she was in grad school at USF working her way up in the educational system.

The property appraisers office shows a construction date of 1920.

The first reference I can find in the newspaper archive is an ad from 1926 describing it as having plenty of closet space. There was another from 1929 describing it as “Modern,excellently finished…”.

Newspaper ad from 1955 showing the name as Ventnor-
