Snow White’s Cottage Exists in Port Orange!

Have you ever wondered where the real seven dwarfs’ cottage is? Believe it or not, it’s sitting on Spruce Creek just west of Port Orange, Florida
The property was purchased in 1898 by James N. Gamble, a long time winter resident of Daytona Beach, for use as a hunting and fishing retreat. In 1907, he built the small cracker-style cottage he dubbed “Egwanulti”, a Native American word meaning “by the water”. In true Florida style, the house is complete with an adjacent citrus packing house and orange grove.
In 1938 Judge Alfred K. Nippert, Gamble’s son-in-law, constructed a charming replica of Snow White and the Seven Dwarf’s cottage on the land, complete with a Witch’s Hut, Dwarfs’ Mine Shaft and an elaborate network of rocks and gardens.
Also included on the grounds is a 175-acre park with trails that cover five ecosystems and is home to many endangered and threatened species.
