The Architecture of Fort Myers, Florida

I was recently looking at pictures from my trip to Fort Myers in 2011, and I thought I’d share some today.

Fort Myers is really pretty and was a great place to vacation. Look at that blue, blue sky! I wish I was there right now.

If you’re like me, you probably want to know a little about the history of Fort Myers.

Henry Ford and Thomas Edison were friends who spent their winters vacationing right next to one another, and I got to tour their homes while I was there.

Here is some information about each home, their restorations, and some photos from inside. I love seeing how people used to live!
