The Naples Historical Society is the guardian of the Historic Palm Cottage in Naples, Florida. The cottage is Naples Oldest home, built in 1895 and just a block east of the famous Naples Pier. We are open for docent guided house tours, walking tours of the historic district, archival viewing center and special event rental.

Our donors, members and volunteers share a singular passion to "Preserve Our Past for the Future." Naples Historical Society accomplishes this mission through numerous informative tours and through several preservation initiatives, including our children's education program, Pupils at Palm Cottage, our new youth art program, Art in the Garden, and our most significant project, an oral history initiative called, Naples Oral Histories: If These Walls Could Talk!

Additional program support includes our popular speaker's bureau, Talk of the Town!, community-embraced Garden Side Chickee Chats (lecture series), our seasonal promotional event, Christmas at Palm Cottage, and our substantial archival development project.

Whether you are a history buff or a preservation-minded individual, or whether you just need to know more about Naples, take a step back in time and learn about Naples rich and vibrant past through one of our tours. They're perfect for family, friends and visitors alike!

  • Jerry was our tour guide and he is extremely knowledgeable. Our tour was fabulous
  • The Palm Cottage in a Naples Treasure. Very close to the pier. The very old house has seen the tremendous transformation of Naples into a world class resort destination. A docent tour of the house adds so much to the history that this house exudes. They also have a extensive collection of OLD Naples pictures that are a delight to see. You will enjoy the tour.
