Ranked the #1 attraction in Florida by TripAdvisor in 2014, The Stetson Mansion is Florida's first luxury home and the grandest home ever built in Florida during the 19th century! Built in 1886 by famed hat maker and philanthropist John B. Stetson, his winter retreat was the only "Gilded Age" estate built in Florida. The Stetsons were known for hosting magnificent parties and gatherings for local townsfolk and some of the most elite and influential citizens of our country's "most prosperous era." Henry Flagler built a private railway spur to the Stetson estate so the finest "art" in architectural building materials could be delivered on site.
