Avondale pre-dates the Florida land boom of the 1920s. A trio that included future mayor A.B. Edwards developed Avondale Heights in 1915, but it was ahead of its time and the lots did not sell. They were purchased by developers Irving Bacheller, Edward Brewer and Fred Woolley in 1923, and the following year they replatted the area as just Avondale, perhaps noticing that it had no “heights.” According to the new historical marker on Brewer Court, Bacheller and his associates widened the streets and enlarged the lots to make the neighborhood more upscale.
Lots sold well, except the larger ones on the bayou. The developers tried to solve the problem by hiring Martin in 1926 to design a model at 1903 Lincoln. But the boom had already gone bust, and it sat unsold until 1929.
Plenty of lots remained vacant until the postwar boom, when ranch houses took their place alongside the boomers. Some of those have been remodeled, and others torn down, replaced by mini-mansions.
