Enjoy social time in a historic setting...
The BSHS has set the below dates for Teas that members and nonmembers can join at the historic Casner Home. Custom teas for private groups may be arranged.




January 12:   Tea Social  (featuring Historical Trivia)   The Bonita Springs Historical Society is hosting its first Tea of 2018 on Friday, January 12th at its historic Casner House on South Riverside Drive. Those that have attended one of our Teas in the past and may recall the delicious assortment of finger sandwiches and lovely desserts – all homemade – and Tea, of course, all served in the cozy 1930s setting.
   After dessert, enjoy a short program and a Docent lead tour of this period home. Many items in the home you may remember from your mothers’ or grandmothers’ homes. We hope you’ll join us this year (and bring a friend or two). Reservations and information can be had by calling the Society’s number at 239-992-6997.

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.
