Word has it that these very special three Reserve buildings were part of Charles Ringling’s estate before his mansion was built. Charles was John Ringling’s brother and a key founding partner in Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus. Once they made their fortunes, Charles built his mansion, and the buildings were then moved to their current location at 1322 N. Tamiami Trail, near Downtown Sarasota and the Van Wezel. Once on the Trail, the buildings were used as a boarding house, a circus performance venue, and much more!
Conveniently located near Downtown Sarasota, the beaches, St. Armand's Circle, many performing arts venues, restaurants, and more! A great Sarasota escape close to the arts and nature and much more.
FREE iRide shuttle between The Reserve SRQ and many points of interest downtown. Very close to all the arts (Van Wezel, Asolo, Florida Studio Theater, Sarasota Opera, Sarasota Ballet, Ringling Museum, Ca'D'Zan (John Ringling house), and much more.
