At the corner of 12th Avenue South and Gulfshore Boulevard sits an exquisite example of Naples authentic charm, Historic Palm Cottage™. Under the preservation of the Naples Historical Society, the Palm Cottage™ house museum lets visitors experience the rustic, hand-crafted charm of Old Naples through guided tours where trained docents share unique insights, historic facts and colorful tales about this local architectural gem and the community surrounding it.

This two-story home was built by one of Naples founding residents, Walter N. Haldeman, and boasts 3,500 square feet of original and donated artwork, furnishings and tools spanning over 100 years.
