Arlene Roth talked about the history of the Burroughs Home, the first year-round luxury home in Fort Myers, and of the family who lived there. Built in 1901, the mansion was the scene of many social events attended by Fort Myers' elite, including the Edisons, Fords, and Firestones.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Fort Myers, Florida, from March 16-21 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
