It has remained a Historical B & B ever since. There have been four owners during the period of 1992 to 2018. The present owners have taken great pride in this Historic Mt. Dora property and they have restored it to its present condition. As a result, the reputation of the Farnsworth House and its revenue stream have grown exponentially....Mt.
