Overview

Walk among live oaks and lush gardens, relax in a rocking chair on the veranda as you watch the river roll gently by, but first, join Mona and Jettie Burroughs as they share 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 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. The Burroughs Home has come alive once again under the management of Uncommon Friends Foundation.
