Bonnet House: A Tropical Paradise

In Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the historical Bonnet House and Museum stands among 35 acres of garden and is on the oceanfront. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and serves as a gathering spot for artists, with frequent concerts and exhibitions. Human activity on the site of the house dates back 2,000 years. Despite the long and interesting history it has had, the site was listed as one of America’s 11 most endangered sites in 2008, thanks to rapid development nearby.
