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 – The Burroughs Home. Built in 1901, this Georgian Revival Mansion was the scene of many social events that played host to 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.
