This beautiful, well-tended home and grounds affords a lovely half-day of meandering through gardens and an historic home. Very easy to find if you are in the Destin area. Beautiful live oaks, butterfly garden, and nature trail.

Yes, it costs $4 per person for the home tour. There is also an entrance fee for the park which is $4 per car and pay by honor system. The grounds are open all year but on Tuesdays and Wednesdays the house is closed.
