John Ringling's Home
(of Ringling Bros, Circus)


The Cà d'Zan, or the "House of John, "
is John and Mable Ringling's Venetian Gothic mansion on Sarasota Bay.
"The imposing structure was originally intended to combine certain
architectural features drawn from two of Mrs. Ringling's favorite
Venetian hotels: the Danieli and the Bauer-Grünwald...
The Ringlings moved into the mansion just
before Christmas in 1926."
