The Wonder House
Pera, Eric. “Bartow Wonder House Cleared for Tours.” The Ledger, The Ledger, 30 Mar. 2019, www.theledger.com/news/20190329/bartow-wonder-house-cleared-for-tours.
This next article is about the future state of the home. After a while, Schuck sold the home and has since fallen into a state of disrepair. However the home was purchased and renovated by a couple who are seeking to reopen the home again for tours as well as return the home back to its former glory. This is helpful to understand the current state of the home and potentially contact the owners of the home to gather more information as well as organize a visit.

This article provided a good base for my research. Schuck, the original creator of the home, lived in Pennsylvania but developed a disease that required him to move to a much warmer client otherwise he would not live very long. Upon moving to Florida he built a small mansion known as the Wonder House which became a local spectacle because of its design. It became an attraction and there were weekly tours of the home. Reading this information gave me a good place to start with the history of the location.
