Marabanong is nominated for listing on the National Register for significance at the local level under Criterion C for Architecture. The building has served as a residence throughout its history. During the late 1800s and into the early 1900s, the house served as a retreat for medical patients. In the early 1910s, the house and surrounding grounds were used to shoot several films by the Jacksonville film industry, including a movie shot by the Karem Company starring Ethel Barrymore. With its large full height tower, a two-story wraparound veranda, alternating shingle patterns, and detailed spindlework along the balustrades, Marabanong is an excellent early example ofthe Queen Anne style found in Jacksonville.
