Tours: February thru September Thur-Sat
Touring The Mansion is truly an Experience
Visit the largest, grandest, and most historic home ever built in Florida before the 20th century. The Stetson brand set the 19th century benchmark for quality. Built in 1886 for famous hat mogul John B. Stetson, the mansion was once the most exciting address in Florida. Having Thomas Edison as a personal friend who installed the power in one of the first homes in the world designed and built with electricity helped. Our lively and knowledgeable tour guides will entertain visitors through magnificently embellished and appointed rooms, hallways and niches of the mansion. No room is off limits. Not even the owners suite! John B. Stetson's legacy will be brought back to life along with the recent story how his beloved winter home has been too.
