He believed the area ideal for a hospital and a community. Dr. Albee bought large parcels of land that included twenty-five miles of waterfront. He hired the famous city planner, John Nolen, to work on the design. He founded the Venice-Nokomis Bank, the only boom period bank to survive the Depression. Albee donated land for the Venice-Nokomis Methodist Church and also land for the Nokomis School.
