Found this place completely by accident - I have to say the word free caught my eye. It's a great little house with a lot of history and the docents are very knowledgeable. The garden is also a little haven of peace.

If you like historic homes this is a must. And best of all, its free. Located in there midst of the hustle of Duval Street, its easy to find. Try to spar 20 minutes for a nice diversion!

Loved this little gem tucked back on Duval street. Free admission with a docent inside to teach us about the history of the house and key west.

Just a little spot along husting, bustling Duval St. Nice tropical setting with some benches tucked away in the shade. Interesting bit of history and it's FREE with rest rooms. It's a nice stop which can be quite welcome, midway down Duval.More

Key West can be pricey, but this is a nice little free tourist attraction. It takes less than a half hour to tour but they had a wonderful volunteer who gave us a lot of additional information. I'm sorry I didn't get his name but...More
