History
James Seymour Capen, one of Winter Park’s first residents, built the establishment in 1885. Over the next century, it was owned by various local families and couples. It faced demolition in 2013, but the Winter Park community raised enough to money to save the house and move it to the Albin Polasek Museum. The Capen House went through a two-year renovation, resulting in a historic facility full of vintage elegance.

The Capen House is nestled along the edge of Lake Osceola. It is located near the Orlando Science Center, Winter Park History Museum and Rollins College. The Orlando International Airport is 29 minutes away.
