To all our friends and supporters,

It is with some sadness and excitement that we inform you that the Board of Directors of the BSHS have decided to sell the historic home on Riverside Drive known as "The Casner House". It has served as the meeting place for many Teas and Special Teas for the past few years. Your support and attendance at these Teas and Special Teas has been greatly appreciated. The BSHS has always shared the rich history of Old Bonita Springs with such events.

We will be doing these events in a new location at our other 1915 Historic Home known as
"The McSwain House" at 27451 Old 41 Road. This affords us a new venue that is larger and has more accommodations for parking as well. This house has it's own wonderful history that we can share with you. Teas may become a little different but the History remains the same.

Our continued effort to share what we have learned about Bonita Springs with the community is ongoing. If you want to inquire about holding an event such as a Tea please contact us at 239-992-6997,
info@bonitaspringshistoricalsociety.org, or mail to PO Box 3015.

Once again we do thank all of you for your support and attendance at the "Casner House" over the past few years.

With gratitude and excitement,

Bonnie Whittemore
President of the BSHS

 
Please call 239-992-6997 for additional information and reservations.

CASNER HOME

Casner House 1950
Purchased by the Society in 1996, the Casner-Holzmeyer House has served as the headquarters of Society, event venue, office space, work area, and storage for archives. It has been transformed into a Period House to create a living history museum, to illustrate what life was like here in Bonita Springs in the early 1900s.
