BONNET HOUSE MUSEUM & GARDENS
900 North Birch Road, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304 Directions
Bonnet House was created by Chicago-born artist, Frederic Clay Bartlett on South Florida's oceanfront land in 1920. By the time the early settler Hugh Taylor Birch had purchased the Bonnet House site in 1895, the grounds had witnessed 4,000 years of Florida history. Bonnet House Museum & Gardens preserves the special legacy of Frederic and Evelyn Bartlett. The museum links today's society with the architectural, artistic, and environmental heritage of the Bartletts through pleasant and enriching cultural interactions. Today, the estate is a famous house museum devoted not only to the preservation of history and the environment but also to learning and artistic expressions such as the Bartletts and the Birches themselves.
