Considered a gem of historical interior design the Audubon House is a restoration project which is furnished as a replica of a prosperous 1800s Key West home. The constructor and first owner of the house was one of the ten most affluent men in the Florida Keys during this time. Both the house and its tropical garden give the visitor a glimpse of every- day- life in a rich man's home of the mid 19th century. The garden itself is worth a visit. It has a cook house as well as a herb garden alongside 200 blooming orchids.
