Bonnet House was the winter home of the artists Frederic Clay Bartlett and Evelyn Fortune Bartlett. The historic home is located on 35 acres of coastline in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale Beach and encompasses one of the last natural, undeveloped parcels on the coastline between Miami and Palm Beach. Bonnet House interprets life in Ft. Lauderdale as it was in the 1930s and 1940s and has the distinction of being the only home of two American artists with original furnishings that is open to the public. In addition to being open for public tour, Bonnet House hosts an annual series of outdoor concerts, provides exhibition opportunities for artists, and displays examples of the artwork of both Mr. and Mrs. Bartlett. Bonnet House also offers after-school education programs for area at-risk youth, school curriculum enrichment programs, as well as adult educational programs in art and ornithology. Total annual visitation is approximately 45,000.
