A Touch of History:
Ponce de Leon visited Southwest Florida in the 16th century. For 150 years, different settlers started populating South Florida. Some, the Seminoles found refuge deep in the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp where they developed a culture uniquely suited to the climate and terrain of south Florida. Others, cattle ranchers, settled mostly after the Civil War. Trading posts and railroads appeared and in the late 1880 Naples and Marco Island were already gaining popularity as winter resorts for wealthy Northerners and sportsmen.
In 1923, Barron G. Collier, Memphis born millionaire, founded what is today Collier County. He introduced paved roads, electric power, telegraphs and countless new businesses and homeowners to Florida's last frontier.
