  • Visit The Howey Mansion, the former home of Howey-in-the-Hills founder William J. Howey. This historic house, which is located less than a five-minute drive from Mission Resort + Club, was built between 1925 and 1927. The home was designed by architect Katherine Cotheal Budd, who was known for her work creating 72 temporary lodgings known as “hostess houses” during World War I. Constructed at military training camps, these homelike abodes offered a place for women to stay when visiting their husbands and other relatives. The Howey Mansion is one of the last examples of her work that remains. Previously abandoned, the grand home and since been lovingly restored to the magnificent Central Florida landmark it once was. Learn about its rich history on a guided tour of the storied estate, including special tours during Halloween and Christmas.
