Tripadvisor has named the Stetson Mansion the top rated landmark attraction in all of Florida. Florida's First Luxury Estate, the Mansion is the largest, grandest, and most historic home ever built in Florida before the 20th century. This Gilded Age estate is not a museum or a home frozen in time, although it predates all other grand mansion museums in Florida. This is still a private estate. The home of Florida’s first snow bird and famous hat baron was hidden and lost for 100 years. It has recently been rescued, restored and updated in a timeless fashion. Tours this time of year are all about the meaning of Christmas, not the Stetson history. Each year 10 rooms in the mansion are embellished with new elaborate designer decorations and 24 nativities from around the world. Decorations are new and different each year. Room themes for 2019 will be announced later this year. The Victorians started our modern Christmas traditions like gift giving and Christmas trees, so what's better than seeing Christmas in one of the Victorian homes where it all started? The Mansion had one of the first trees ever illuminated with electric lights. That's what you get when Thomas Edison is your BFF!
