An extraordinary blend of art, architecture, history and ecology. This 35-acre subtropical estate and historic house museum was designed by Frederic Clay Bartlett, a noted painter and art collector. Bonnet House is one of the few complete homes and studios of two American artists with original furnishings open to the public. A nature trail walk taking up to 30 minutes is available.
Built in 1920 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Bonnet House Museum & Gardens is a 35 acre subtropical estate and historic house museum. The Main House is filled with a collection of art and the personal treasures of the Birch/Bartlett families. The surrounding grounds of the estate range from a mangrove swamp to a coastal hammock, providing habitat for a variety of fish, monkeys and other wildlife.
