[MAP]

Built in 1920 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Bonnet House Museum & Gardens is one of the few complete homes and studios of two American artists open to the public. Nestled among miles of beachfront development are 35 acres of a native barrier island ecosystem. The Main House is filled with a collection of art and the personal treasures of the Birch/Bartlett families. Here, you can walk where ancient Tequesta Indians, early European settlers, and shipwrecked sailors once roamed. See one of the finest orchid collections in the continental U.S. and catch a glimpse of wading birds and an occasional manatee.
