“one acre lush with orchids& tropical plants”

The Audubon House & Tropical Gardens is a brick-pathed garden that offers a lush 1-acre (4,000 m2) view of orchids, bromeliads and other tropical foliage, an herb garden and 1840-style nursery. The house has many antique furnishings purchased from estate sales and auctions in Europe. It contains 28 first edition works of the famous ornithologist John James Audubon. Audubon visited the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas in 1832 and left Key West having sighted and drawn 18 new birds for his "Birds of America" folio. It is believed that many of those drawings were conceived in the Audubon House garden. Also, Audubon's painting of the white-crowned pigeon features the Geiger tree found in the front yard of the house. The Audubon House Gallery, separate from the main house features a unique collection of 19th century original Audubon art and a comprehensive selection of John James Audubon's images.
