MEETINGS & SPECIAL EVENTS

Attendees of your business meeting, event or large gathering are in good company at the Burroughs Home & Gardens. The backdrop of history is rich here, where the likes of Burroughs, Ford, Edison, and Firestone and others met during their seasonal visits to Fort Myers to discuss business, politics, and current events. One can only imagine the grand ideas generated during these encounters. Great business relationships are built here at the Burroughs Home & Gardens.

The open-air Gale McBride Pavilion, or for smaller meetings the Burroughs Home, is the ideal setting for your annual business picnic or party, client appreciation receptions, cocktail parties, business and board meetings, and more. Imagine a surprise birthday party, anniversary celebration, sweet sixteen, bat-mitzvah or bar-mitzvah or quinceanera overlooking the beautiful river. The Burroughs Home & Gardens has also been the location for local high school proms and more.

Whatever the event theme, from the historic backdrop to the amazing view, the tone will be set for fun, memories, and moments to be captured in photos and videos.
