For a glimpse into the opulent 19th-century lifestyle of one of Florida’s wealthiest residents, head intoStetson Mansion, one of Florida's most historic houses and its only Gilded Age mansion. Named “Florida’s Most Popular Tourist Attraction” by TripAdvisor, the private 1886 Victorian estate of J.B. Stetson—the inventor of cowboy hats—offers all-access tours of its styled rooms, decorated hallways, and numerous nooks. Notice the elaborate parquet floors and antique windows. Opt for a grand tour to see more rooms and the tower balcony. One of the more popular rooms, the Zen room—once a schoolhouse and now a cottage—features an original Polynesian ceiling.

What a beautiful Home! All period furnishings w modern kitchen that blends right in. Joann was our guide, very knowledgeable on the history and the renovations that were done on the house and grounds. So looking forward to next year when they will be able to decorate for Christmas! Well worth the drive from Melbourne (1 1/2hrs)! If you are anywhere in Fl it is a must see destination. About 30 minutes w of 95, 15 minutes off 4. Thank you again for opening your amazing home❣
We tour the mansion yesterday. We loved it with all the history behind it. Joanne was very nice and knowledgeable. I recommend this wonderful tour.
