Past Residents

Governor Hugh Carey and Evangeline Gouletas

For a period of time Governor Hugh Carey and Evangeline Gouletas owned two homes on West Seaview Circle on Duck Key. Carey at age 62 married Gouletas age 44 in 1981. Both Governor Carey and Evangeline Gouletas are notables in their own right. Their marriage represented a union between an important and ambitious politician and one of its wealthiest businesswomen. They are no longer married.

Carey was Governor of New York State for two terms between from 1975 through 1982. Prior to that he was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1961through 1974. Chicago real estate millionaire Gouletas was a founder along with two brothers of American Invsco Corp., which in the 1970s and 1980s was among the nation's top condo converters. After investing in real estate in Chicago, New York and Miami for several decades, Gouletas moved to Miami where she started developing in Brickell Avenue area of Miami.

During his second term of office Carey started to lose voter support and did not run for a third term. Shortly after his marriage to Gouletas news accounts reported that Evangeline had been married several times previously.

An NBC news account reported,

"Governor Hugh Carey's new bride, Evangeline Gouletas, recalled claiming 2 previous marriages; her 1st husband reported surfacing today, bringing total to 3."

Another news report said,

"Hugh Carey has a divorce problem. He is forbidden to take Communion because he is married to a divorced woman, glamorous Greek Orthodox Millionaire Evangeline Gouletas, who has now been married four times. His church does not recognize divorce at all. Her church does recognize divorce, for numerous reasons, but allows only two per person." " The Careys announced last week that they will apply for a multiple annulment."
