The Thomas Edison-Henry Ford Winter Homes are located in Fort Myers, Florida and are a significant historical landmark. The winter homes were once owned by Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, two of America's most famous inventors and industrialists. The properties consist of two separate estates, adjacent to one another, that are open to the public.

Thomas Edison's estate, known as "Seminole Lodge," was constructed in 1886 and was the winter home of Edison and his family for over 50 years. The property consists of a main house, guest house, and caretaker's quarters, all surrounded by lush gardens and botanicals. The main house is a two-story, Queen Anne-style mansion with a wrap-around porch that overlooks the Caloosahatchee River.

Henry Ford's estate, known as "The Mangoes," was built in 1916 and was his winter home until his death in 1947. The property consists of a main house, guest house, and garage. The main house is a two-story, Mediterranean-style mansion with a large veranda.

Both estates are now open to the public and provide a glimpse into the personal lives of Edison and Ford. Visitors can take guided tours of the properties, which include original furnishings, artifacts, and memorabilia. The estates also offer a museum and botanical garden that showcase the inventors' contributions to science and technology.
