Join us for a new feature with WPBT’s Original Productions which we are calling our “Incubator”. We will tell you about a project we are developing and you can provide stories and suggestions that will help us shape the project. And if you like, you can choose to help support WPBT2’s Original Productions with a donation.
Our first Incubator project is the Bonnet House, a one hour documentary that will trace the history and contributions of the Bartlett family of Fort Lauderdale. It will weave together a rich tapestry of stories about the people and events that shaped the house and its vicinity. And it will showcase the simple but whimsical architecture that still delights visitors today. From the beginning, Frederic had a very clear notion of what Bonnet House should be ... a seaside retreat, conducive to creativity but lacking the opulence and formality that characterized the mansions of Palm Beach. He designed Bonnet House as his interpretation of a Caribbean plantation, and believed that the house should be inclusive and complimentary to its subtropical environment. The whimsical ambience of Bonnet House is a product of the creative synergy that existed between Frederic and his wife Evelyn and the happiness and comfort they experienced in one another.
