This lovingly-restored Queen Anne Victorian was once the dream home of ship captain William Hazard Northup. It was built for him on a spacious, shady lot in downtown Pensacola, where he could keep an eye on his business interests and still smell the salt air. During Captain Northup's distinguished career on land, he served as a bank president, Postmaster General of Pensacola, Mayor of Pensacola, and helped found the city's Philharmonic Orchestra. His exquisite home, with its gleaming hardwood floors and paneling, sparkling chandeliers, and charming Victorian nuances, was a favorite gathering place for the leaders of turn-of-the-century Pensacola.
Today it is a place where vacationers and business travelers come to relax and enjoy the easy going elegance of the Pensacola Victorian Bed and Breakfast and the delightful hospitality of Innkeepers Chuck and Barbee Major. The Majors have nearly a half century of experience in the hospitality/restaurant industry and share a genuine love of entertaining
