In 1905, Sarasota‘s first mayor, John Gillespie, built a home and a nine-hole golf course on the land that is now the Sarasota County Court House. The course, which gave Links Avenue its name, survived well into the 1920s.  In 1923, Towles Court became one of Sarasota‘s earliest downtown neighborhoods with residents coming from a variety of cultural, professional and financial backgrounds.

After time and deterioration, a local developer with a vision for renewing the neighborhood, established a beautiful art enclave in the 1990s.  Towles Court has since expanded to become a popular venue both for locals and visitors alike. Open Tuesday – Saturday (please check website for seasonal hours).  Music is scheduled October – May for the 3rd FRIDAY NIGHT ART WALK. This provides an additional opportunity to MEET THE ARTISTS, SHOP, DINE & ENJOY!
