"Helen Clay Bartlett and Frederic Clay Bartlett received the property in 1919 as a wedding gift from her father, Fort Lauderdale pioneer Hugh Taylor Birch, and they built the home as a winter retreat, finishing it in 1921. Helen died of breast cancer in 1925, and Frederic married Evelyn Fortune Lilly in 1931.
In 1983, Evelyn Bartlett gave Bonnet House to the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation and stipulated it be preserved upon her death."[1]
