It was a nice surprise to discover Watt Espy once had a stake in this motel in Panama City, Florida. He and a couple of partners had invested in it. This is in the late '60s - early '70s. Although I'm not sure, my guess it is that was an existing motel that needed a big spark and some new lifeblood. Espy did some part-time work there - the degree and type of work is not fully known. The motel might have been successful, but the partnership dissolved fairly quickly, and not in a good way. Suddenly Espy's investment was in jeopardy, and he filed a lawsuit against his partners to recover what he had put in. I don't know if he ever did, and I don't know the complete circumstances behind what happened. When I learn more about the motel - the year it was built, how it ended up in Espy's hands, and what happened to it afterward - I will update this post. Hopefully someone will see this and supply me with more information.
