The Palm Cottage displays a special piece of Naples history. Constructed in 1895, this storied home is on the National Register of Historic Places and is now a museum that has been decorated to reflect its previous 19th-century charm. If the walls could talk at Palm Cottage, they would tell of wild parties with the likes of Gary Cooper and Hedy Lamarr in attendance. A theater shows oral history films revealing more stories about Naples. See unique furniture pieces, antique kitchen appliances and heirloom portraits of Naples natives from more than a hundred years ago. Visits to the cottage are by guided tour only. After touring the house, explore the adjacent Norris Gardens. They include the Pioneer Garden, Edible Garden, Palm Garden, Water Garden, Garden of the Senses and Shade Garden.
