History

Like many northerners at the time, Leander L. Farnsworth began vacationing in Mt Dora in 1882, shortly after the town was first settled — one of the first ‘snowbirds’ to enjoy central Florida’s mild winters. In 1886, Farnsworth purchased the property from Samuel and Lizzie Power for $1,031. Farnsworth and his wife Frances raised three sons at the Farnsworth House. One son, Charles, purchased the house from his father in 1894.
From 1908 to the present, the house has had several owners. For a short time is was transferred to the city of Mount Dora for the high school. In 1944, George Ramsdell purchased the property, added the carriage house and remodeled the main house to its present form. It was operated as the Ramsdell Apartment House until 1992 when Dick and Sandra Shelton bought the property to make it into a bed and breakfast and apartment house.
The current owners, Soren Strandberg and Kim Evans bought the property on Aug 31, 2012. Soren and Kim met in Stockholm in 2006 and got married in 2010. They are now happy to realize their dream and to live in Mount Dora operating the Farnsworth House Bed and Breakfast.
