Mary Anne's historical Love Shack destroyed by overzealous Ginger fans

"REDINGTON SHORES – A chunk of Gilligan’s Island disappeared with the recent demolition of the house that stood at 18208 Sunset Blvd.

The home had been owned by actress Dawn Wells, who played Gilligan’s pal Mary Ann on the long-running ’60s TV series.

Wells sold the property in January to Devonshire Properties.

A new duplex townhouse, one of many in the area, will soon be constructed on the site. The Town Commission approved that use at its Feb. 13 meeting.

Wells’ connection with the property was not mentioned when the topic was discussed at the meeting. A citizen that asked who had previously owned the home was told “that’s irrelevant.”"
