Amedeo Obici, an Italian immigrant and founder of Planter’s Peanuts, lived at The Obici House on Bay Point Farm with his wife, Louise. The house was styled after an Italian villa, on a 263-acre farm. Details, including two lions from Paris lining the driveway, Greek columns and expansive windows, create an example of exceptional architectural detail of Italian inspiration. The Bay Point Farm was part of the Sleepy Hole Farm, sold to Obici in 1924, where he lived until his passing in 1947.
