“historic home with interesting family stories”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

This house dates back to the early 1700's and has had some modifications that date back over 200 years. Oldest home in the 'new' world. The stories behind the different owners, their families and national origins are quite interesting and the guides really do a great job bringing those stories to life. This is a short tour but well worth the effort. This is a stop on the trolley tour which does frequent stops where users may hop on and hop off.

“Love The History”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

My son and I ended up having a private tour with our guide since we were the only ones there (at that time). Tour guide was very knowledgeable and I found it interesting how the house was altered according to the nationalities of the occupants. I wish there was more to look at but the historical society appears to be trying. Map room was a little disappointing. I was hoping to see real maps.

“Great Historic Tour”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We had a wonderful tour guide who had a genuine love for this attraction. Even on the Sunday before Memorial Day it wasn't too crowded. The garden is small, but shaded and the bathrooms are clean and air-conditioned. We loved the map room, where you could see Florida take shape in the eyes of explorers over the past 300 years. It was a great experience!
