Read in the local paper that house was to be open for a rare public viewing. Was not disappointed. Beautifully maintained and the Crosley family history is very interesting. If you get a chance to visit - do it.

This place is remarkably nice but the catch 22 is that it's not really open 2 the public. This location is basically 4 rentals only 4 wedding ceremonies and receptions or private parties. The mansion was very well refurbished and is operated by Manatee County....More
