The Burroughs House

The Burroughs House is a 1901 Georgian Revival house on Fort Myers' First Street.
It hosted local elites in the early 20th century, including the Edisons and the Fords.


After the last descendant of the Burroughs family died in 1978, it was given to
the City of Fort Myers.  Today it is open for tours and special events.
