The Capen House was built in 1885 by one of Win­ter Park’s found­ing fathers, James Sey­mour Capen. The plan is to trans­port the home from its cur­rent loca­tion on Inter­lachen Avenue to a large lake­front lot on the Polasek Museum prop­erty.  The cur­rent own­ers, who delayed the demo­li­tion of the house at the request of com­mu­nity mem­bers, have accepted a let­ter of intent and will receive the final fundrais­ing cam­paign pro­posal in the com­ing weeks.
