The Everglades Laundry is a historic site at 105 West Broadway in Everglades City, Florida.

On September 22, 2001, the site was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

The wayside marker describes it as the Old Laundry Building, and it was completed in 1928, serving in the capacity as a community laundry building. It became the clubhouse for the "Everglades Women's Club" in 1965, when it was purchased from the Colliers.

Museum of the Everglades[edit]

The site is now the home of the Museum of the Everglades, opened in 1998[1] by the Collier County Museum. Exhibits display the history and culture of the southwest Everglades area, including the ancient Calusa, Seminole, pioneers and entrepreneurs, such as Barron Collier.
