The Naples Historical Society is the guardian of the Historic Palm Cottage in Naples, Florida. The cottage is Naples Oldest home, built in 1895 and just a block east of the famous Naples Pier. We are open for docent guided house tours, walking tours of the historic district, archival viewing center and special event rental.

Our donors, members and volunteers share a singular passion to "Preserve Our Past for the Future." Naples Historical Society accomplishes this mission through numerous informative tours and through several preservation initiatives, including our children's education program, Pupils at Palm Cottage, our new youth art program, Art in the Garden, and our most significant project, an oral history initiative called, Naples Oral Histories: If These Walls Could Talk!

Additional program support includes our popular speaker's bureau, Talk of the Town!, community-embraced Garden Side Chickee Chats (lecture series), our seasonal promotional event, Christmas at Palm Cottage, and our substantial archival development project.

Whether you are a history buff or a preservation-minded individual, or whether you just need to know more about Naples, take a step back in time and learn about Naples rich and vibrant past through one of our tours. They're perfect for family, friends and visitors alike!

  • Highly suggest taking a tour. Very informational and love the history! Matthew Harrington Southwest Florida Luxury Realtor® | Domain Realty
  • Highly interesting place to visit. Originally built in 1895, Palm Cottage has seen Naples change from a small town with hotel for the rich and wealthy to spend their holidays fishing and hunting, to the bustling city in the 21st century. Taken on a trip down (someone else's) memory lane, our guide Nancy immediately grasped our attention and was able to retain it for over an hour. Awesome!
