Raymond Conway’s employers gave him a house in 1939 or 1940. He was working for a private  hunting club whose property covered an area from McCall, a small settlement where 776 and 771 meet today, to Placida. It also included what is now Cape Haze and Rotonda.

Raymond was the club’s private game warden and guide. The club’s hunting lease allowed them to build a house for Raymond, allowed for Raymond and his family to live in it, but it did not allow for Raymond to purchase the property the house sat on.
