The One-Of-A-Kind House Of Wonders In Florida Is Now Open For Tours
One of the most effortlessly cool, historically unusual places to visit in Florida happens to be located in the small town of Bartow. This wonderful house is a true gem and has been reopened after many years of being closed to the public. While it is a private residence now, this unique house also happens to offer tours to people who are interested, and what you see inside might just shock and delight you.
The Wonder House as it is known, has a unique history within the small town of Bartow, Florida.
This house is not like your average historical house—starting with the fact that it was built entirely without blueprints in 1925.
Conrad Schuck invented and implemented his own special equipment in order to construct The Wonder House, like the wall-sized tilt table which was used to plaster the walls.
As a tourist attraction for many decades, there wasn’t much furniture within the house, but instead only had a few rocking chairs by the porch.
But what really made this house special was the fact that Shuck was a collector of curiosities—randomly throughout the house there would be various snakes in jars, a coffin smack dab in the middle of the parlor, a taxidermy collection of different birds of Florida.
The new owners of the property wanted to maintain the integrity of the house and spent years restoring the house to its original glory.
The best part? You can book your very own tour within this house and learn all about the history and view the curiosities that still line the shelves and fill the home.
There are even specialty holiday tours which are some of the most beautiful and magical tours of the house that really showcase the spirit of the holidays.
Book your tour of The Wonder House and visit the attraction that Floridians called the "House that Breathes."
