The Estero Island Historic Society Museum and Nature Center is located in the Davison Cottage (seen above), built in 1921 on the beachfront, and now located at 161 Bay Rd., Fort Myers Beach.

Come visit us on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 until noon.

The Cottage Museum sits at the trailhead to Matanzas Pass Preserve, the last maritime tropical hammock on Estero Island.   The Preserve is open dawn to dusk and is ADA compatible.

EIHS General Membership meetings are held the second Monday of the month during season at 7:00 pm and are open to the public.  Meetings are now held in our new library, on the third floor adjacent to the cafe, and with free wi/fi! 

Sea grapes are just beginning to ripen now, so be patient. Jelly will soon follow. 

FGCU Consortium Series classes are conducted year round as part of the graduating requirements for university students.

Each Christmas the EIHS hosts an open house for Beach Elementary Students, seen below participating in a game with AJ Bassett.
