Lovely old home. We were happy to see it and we had a wonderful docent who made our visit very informative. Happy that so many people take the time to keep up sich wonderful historic places It was a shame that the Christmas decoration were so garish and not in keeping with the traditions of such a lovely old home. The Christmas decorations spoiled the visit for us. We wish we had known to go at a time it is not decorated. We are telling other friends that they should go and that they will enjoy their time there

The tour guide + tour of the house were excellent! I enjoyed hearing about the people who previously lived in this house.

Burroughs Home & Gardens

Towering oak trees and a sun-kissed waterfront surround the historical Burroughs Home & Gardens, providing comfortable blankets of shade and cool breezes while exemplifying the reverent collaboration between classic architecture and the natural world. The 1901 Georgian Revival mansion—once the setting for a silent 1920s reality show starring businessman Nelson Burroughs, his wife Adeline, and their glamorous daughters, Mona and Jettie—currently facilitates tours throughout its parlors, dining rooms, and sweeping verandas.

Guides share anecdotes from the family's journals and oral histories and point out examples of such turn-of-the-century luxuries as indoor plumbing, electricity, and steam-powered Nintendo. In keeping with the grounds' esteemed history, the public can also arrange to schedule weddings and social events like those that once hosted members of the Fort Myers elite, including the Edisons, Fords, and Firestones.
