Wonderful place to tour with so much green space in the middle of a heavy developed and tourist city! It was a step into nature with so much art and a beautiful older home. The volunteers were so helpful and it would be great to visit again.

A very nice place to walk around and get the feel of what Fort Lauderdale was like 60 years ago. Learn some history about the area what it must of been like to build something anything back then. The grounds are beautiful with lots of wildlife. worth taking a look at.

Its amazing to think that when this was built it was the only house in this area for miles.
A fantastic range of historical items, amazing gardens and animals.

The story behind this historic house and those who lived it will amaze and surprise you. The souvenirs collected by the original owner and his artistic renderings throughout the property will warm anyone's heart. The paintings commissioned by the owner tell a story of deep friendship and trust.
