Step back in time to Florida’s golden era and tour the grand Audubon House and Tropical Gardens. Home to John Hulling Geiger, a wealthy maritime captain, and his family in the 1840s, this fabulous mansion was built in the American Classic Revival architectural style. The name of the house comes from the artist and naturalist James Audubon, who visited the grounds in 1832 to paint. Much of his work is available to see in the gallery adjacent to the house.
The house is blessed with an acre of tropical gardens which surround the house. Marvel at the orchids, bromeliads, rare tropical palms and crotons as you take a walk through the estate. As well as all the lush foliage, there are many beautiful butterflies and birds which flit in and out of the plants. One of the highlights of the garden is the cook house, a historically accurate outbuilding where meals were prepared and brought into the mansion, a common feature in Floridian homes of the time. The cookhouse, gardens and the house are open to visitors daily, and if you’re lucky you may bump into the resident ghost.
