DEVELOPMENT OF A BELIZEAN HOTEL 2 Development of a Belizean Hotel: The Great House Hotel The Great House Inn is located in the historic Fort George area. The Great House was constructed in 1927 for Mr. & Mrs. Barney Melhado, a prominent merchant of Belize. Mr. Melhado, whose family was, originally of Portuguese descent and born in Belize, contracted Mr. Cuthbert N. Frazer, a Scotsman living in Belize, to build his home. Mr. Frazer was an independent contractor was at that time in the commerce of trading mahogany to the Belize Estate and Produce Company Ltd. It is alleged that the house was built for the equivalent of $ 12,000.00 U.S.D. Sometime in the late 1940s Mr. Melhado sold his superb home to The Belize Estate and Produce Company Ltd. and moved to Nassau, Bahamas. The Belize Estate and Produce Company Ltd. had been functioning in Belize from the 1800s with its headquarters in London. This company owned incredible acreage of land in the Gallon Jug and Yalbac areas of Belize and prime real estate in the City including the property that now exists between what is now The Great House and the Caribbean Sea. This homemade site was eventually bought over by J. Glikstein and Son Ltd., whose head office was located on Stratford Road, London. Albert Glikstein, grandson of J. Glikstein and wife Marcelle lived in the house that still exists next to The Great House, and frequently traveled back and forth from London.
