Step back in time to the year 1901 and learn about life in Fort Myers more than a century ago. The Burroughs Home, located in the downtown River District in Fort Myers, is the only home of its time still standing in its original location and open to the public. Learn about the Burroughs family as well as the array of famous Americans who often visited the home. The Burroughs Home has kept much of the original furnishings and pictures from the family, making this a “must see” for anyone who visits or lives in Southwest Florida.
Walk among live oaks and lush gardens, relax in a rocking chair on the stately verandah 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.
