Burroughs Home

This 6,000 square foot Fort Myers home was completed in 1901 in the style of Georgian Colonial Revival architecture. Nelson and Adeline Burroughs purchased the home in 1918. The Burroughs family, from Cherokee, Iowa and Chicago, Illinois, became popular Southwest Florida winter residents – known for their business acumen and their social events. When daughter Mona Burroughs Fischer died in 1978, she willed her home to the City stipulating that it be used as a park, library, or museum. The home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 and as a local historic landmark in 1994.
