Please join us for a tour of this historic 1901 Georgian Revival Mansion on the river in the heart of downtown Fort Myers. Docents will share the history and tales of the families who lived there along with the famous Americans who often visited. Step back in time and learn about life in SW Florida a century ago. Be aware that steps are involved with this tour. Follow signs to the parking lot across the street from the Burroughs home. Meet on the front porch at 10:45 a.m.

Continuing our historic experience of Fort Myers, we will have lunch in the courtyard of the Veranda Restaurant which is set in two turn-of-the-century homes. The Veranda is approximately eight blocks from the Burroughs home. You may walk there with the group from the Burroughs parking lot or drive. There is a small parking lot at the restaurant or parking on the adjacent streets.
