Celebrating 100 Years of Gracious Living, Charm and Whimsy
Bonnet House Museum & Gardens is an extraordinary blend of art, architecture, history and ecology. This 35-acre subtropical estate and historic house museum was built in 1920 and was the winter retreat of the Birch/Bartlett family. Filled with a delightful collection of art and personal treasures, the Main House exudes a sense of charm, whimsy and gracious living. The surrounding grounds of the estate remain a virtual oasis of coastal wilderness and informal gardens, nestled amid the commercial development of the Fort Lauderdale beachfront. Bonnet House has survived with remarkable authenticity – reflecting the creative lifestyle of its artist owners and preserving the natural setting of Old South Florida.
The “soft” kickoff Challenge was a huge success and we exceeded our goal. Thank you to all who participated in the challenge.
