A RICH HISTORY IN ST. ANDREWS
Uncle Ernie’s is the home of Ernest (Uncle Ernie) and Jessie Morris. The original house was built in the late 1800s, making it one of St. Andrews’s oldest. Uncle Ernie was born May 19, 1898, in Point Washington, Florida. He married Aunt Jessie on May 7, 1925. They had four children: Ernest Isadora “Bubba,” Gaynell, Ezelle, and Donald. Isadora and his wife Eunice bequeathed this home to preserve and convert into a restaurant so that it would serve as a landmark near the St. Andrew Marina, where Uncle Ernie was known to many and where he made his livelihood. Jim’s wife, Doris, is Uncle Ernie’s great-niece and her mother, Ernestine, Uncle Ernie’s namesake, was in the restaurant business in Bay Minette, Alabama, for 28 years. All photographs and memorabilia you see in the restaurant are here to share and serve Ernest and Ernestine’s memories.
