Historic Cookie House Tours Starting January


CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (Jan. 2, 2018) – Charlotte County Historical Center is offering guided tours of the historic Cookie House. The Cookie House was part of the 10-acre research compound known as the Bass Biological Laboratory founded by John F. Bass, Jr. in the 1930s. The scientific discoveries of this facility are linked to many notable scientists from across the United States and Europe. Much of this history is tied to today’s world-renowned Mote Marine Laboratory.
