Description


At the historic Burroughs Home and Gardens, walk among live oaks and lush gardens, relax in a rocking chair on the verandah as you watch the river roll gently by. Take a tour and walk inside every room in the home as you learn the history and colorful tales of living in one of Fort Myers’ oldest homes. Built in 1901, this Georgian Revival Mansion was the scene of many social events that hosted the Fort Myers’ elite including the Edisons, Fords, and Firestones. Antique furnishings, historical artifacts, and delightful tales of growing up as the privileged daughters of wealthy businessman Nelson Burroughs and his wife Adeline await visitors who want to take a step back in time. This beautiful, riverside home sits on 2.45 acres overlooking the Caloosahatchee River in downtown Fort Myers. Check the website for tour times.
