The Burroughs Home and Gardens is the Perfect Historic Riverfront Venue.Make Burroughs Home & Gardens a part of your Fort Myers vacation plans using our Fort Myers trip website.
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 us as we share the history and colorful tales of living in one of Fort Myers' oldest homes - The Murphy-Burroughs Home.
Built in 1901, this Georgian Revival-style Mansion was the scene of many social events that hosted 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. In addition to historical tours, the home is the perfect waterfront setting for your Wedding/Reception, Private Party, Family Gathering, Company Holiday Party, Anniversary Celebration, Prom or any event you can envision!
