Built in 1901, this Georgian Revival Mansion was the scene of many social events that hosted the Fort Myers' elite. Walk inside this gem today and you'll find intricate, antique furnishings, a grand stairway and one of a kind architecture you won't find anywhere else in Southwest Florida.  The home sits on two acres of lush gardens along the beautiful Caloosahatchee River, the perfect setting for the wedding you've always dreamed of.  The bridal suite is upstairs and the groom suite is in a separate home attached to the mansion.  The grand dining room and dance porch are the ideal setting for your cocktail reception or rehearsal dinner.

The Burroughs Home has come alive once again under the management of Uncommon Friends Foundation. In addition to the weddings of Southwest Florida's most elite and trendy brides, the home is the perfect waterfront setting for private parties and events.  Tours of the home are also given by reservation.

The Burroughs Home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and as a local historic landmark in 1994.

Join our docents as they share the history and colorful tales of living in one of Fort Myers's oldest homes. Tours are offered by Reservation Only on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays. Lunch on Mona's Famous Dancing Porch is also offered, please call 239-337-9505. Reservations are required.
