Fodor's Review

In 1897 Cornelia A. Hill built what's now Kimberly Crest House and Gardens to mimic the châteaux of France's Loire Valley. Surrounded by orange groves, lily ponds, and terraced Italian gardens, the mansion has a French-revival parlor, a mahogany staircase, a glass-mosaic fireplace, and a bubbling fountain in the form of Venus rising from the sea. Alfred and Helen Kimberly, founders of the Kimberly-Clark Paper Company, purchased the estate in 1905, and their daughter,

Mary, lived here until 1979. Most of the 22 rooms are in original condition.
