The Burroughs Home & Gardens, located at 2505 First St. in downtown Fort Myers, is built along the Caloosahatchee River and serves as a prime example of the Georgian Colonial Revival architecture style that was common more than a century ago.
Owned by the city of Fort Myers and operated by the Uncommon Friends Foundation, the site is among the few historical properties that remain open to the public. Burroughs Home & Gardens also hosts special occasions such as weddings, social events or business affairs.
The property boasts panoramic water views as well as recent improvements including a new outdoor pavilion.
