History of The Lesesne House

The Lesesne House, also referred to as the “Crown Jewel of Centre Street,” is one of the major points of interest in the historic district and has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since in 1973. Formal dining rooms and parlors showcase a collection of museum-caliber artwork and antiques, while a two-century-old Live Oak tree is the centerpiece of sunlit courtyards, manicured lawns, and an elegant carriage house. 


Dickens After Dark Entertainment

It's Christmastime in Wonderland, and the Queen wants to sing a song at her Elegant, Royal, Spectaculish Victoriana Majest-i-fabulous Christmas Party. But the words and music are missing, and heads are going to roll! The White Rabbit brings Alice back to Wonderland to save his ears and Christmas!

Follow Alice in this whimsical theatrical performance that will have you begging for more!  Alice in a Christmas Wonderland produced by Jason Woods.  


Located just off the coast of northeast Florida, Amelia Island is easy to reach, but hard to forget. With 13 miles of beautiful beaches, abundant native wildlife, and pristine waters, this barrier island has long been a beloved destination for visitors and residents alike.
