Colored in a painted-lady style in various shades of blues and bright trim, the two and a half story Rheinauer House is one of the stand-out Victorian homes in Ocala's historic district. Built in 1890, the Victorian frame, highlighted with gothic features, was home to Charles Rheinauer. Moving from Thomasville, Georgia, Charles and his brother Maurice set up a dry goods store and later produced cigars. Seen here as the Seven Sisters Inn Bed and Breakfast, the prosperity of the inn suffered greatly in this poor economic climate and was recently rescued at auction by area businessmen.
