Dome Home: Is this Florida’s Most Bizarre Abandoned Building?

The story behind the Dome Home at Cape Romano, Florida, is (almost) as strange as the abandoned building itself.  A long term victim of decay, the house was originally built in 1981 and sold to John Tosto in 2005.  Since then it’s been at the centre of a longstanding redevelopment dispute, which reportedly could have saddled Tosto with fines of over $185,000 on the property.

The outcome of the dispute over the bizarre Dome Home, or Dome House, is unclear, but the abandoned building seems to have become a popular tourist attraction on account of its retro-futuristic appearance – and the fact that it’s so downright out-of-place on this remote strip of land just south of Marco Island.
