Fort Myers Tidbits

Fort Myers, Florida is located in Lee County in the same strategic location that was selected twice by the US Army for a military fort on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. The fierce Seminole Indians had selected this location for their villages even prior to the Army arriving.

Down through the years, the region around the Caloosahatchee River has remained a desired location. From its mouth close to San Carlos Bay, the winding and wide river broadens to a width close to the current downtown area of nearly two miles. There were a sufficient number of creeks that served the Seminole as escape routes from the water into the vast everglades and the visibility was good in both directions. From there, the Indians could easily travel south to the Florida Keys or east to the Atlantic Ocean.

A rich industrialist named Hamilton Diston from Philadelphia arrived in the Caloosahatchee Valley in 1881. Mr. Diston made it known that his objective was to drain the worthless swamp known as the Everglades. Mr. Diston Connected the Caloosahatchee River and Lake Okeechobee. Steamboats churned the waters up the Kissimmee River and between Lake Okeechobee and the Gulf of Mexico. The year 1885 brought the incorporation of Fort Myers. The population of the new community was 349 people.

People from all over South Florida arrived in Ft. Myers looking for scarce building materials. Unfortunately, many of the buildings of the fort had already been dismantled and hauled away. During this same time, a cattle baron named Jacob Summerlin frequently drove his herds of cattle past the old fort grounds on his way to Punta Rassa where they were to be transported to Cuba and paid for in gold. Between the late 1860’s, and the 1870’s numerous settlers started arriving in the region, and by 1876 there were a sufficient number of people living on the correctly surveyed land to justify the official creation of the community officially. In key West, the plat for Ft. Myers was recorded and included all of what is currently known as Lee County.

During the 1870’s, there were numerous private homes, a school, and two general stores. The US Post Office Officially renamed the community Fort Myers in 1876 as opposed to Ft. Myers in order to prevent any confusion with Ft. Myers, Virginia. The name wasn’t legally restored until 1901, although the local residents continued to call the community Ft. Myers.

The population of Fort Myers had increased to 349 people by 1885. People were starting to settle next to the river away from the immediate region of the fort area, and Fort Myers was about to gain a very famous resident. Thomas Edison fell in love with the community in 1885, and by 1887 had built his laboratory and his home on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River.

The population of Fort Myers had increased to 943 people by the early 1900’s. The arrival of the Coast railroad in 1904, greatly facilitated the growth of the community. Construction of the Bradford Hotel started during that same year. By 1910, the increased pace of the growth was reflected by new hotels, commercial ice plants, many banks, and a power plant. By 1920, other notable sign of growth included the start of many residential developments including what came to be known as Dean Park, Wardwood Grove, and Edgewood.

During the 1920’s, growth was apparent in all directions from the grounds of the old fort. Developments that included Alabama Groves, Allen Park, Valencia Terrace, Edison Park, and Seminole Park all got their start during this Boom Time. It was also during these exciting times that the Seaboard Railroad arrived in the community and offered competition to the older Coast railroad.

A combination of inadequate planning, hurricanes, and poor publicity brought an end to the Boom Time in Florida and Fort Myers suffered right along with the rest of Florida. All over the nation Great Depression brought growth and development to a virtual standstill. However, there was still some relative progress. During this time, some of the more luxurious buildings were constructed in Fort Myers. The Edison Bridge was completed and the Federal Building was built.

In Fort Myers, as everywhere else in the world, WW II was the biggest news during the 1940’s. In order to benefit from the fine flying weather in Florida, every county in Florida had air bases. These air bases in Lee County brought servicemen, and oftentimes their families to Fort Myers. Many of these people, as well as their associates came back years later and became permanent residents.

Along with the rest of Southwest Florida and Lee County, Fort Myers has grown during the years since WW II. Vacant residential and commercial locations have gradually been filled in. Development has been concentrated west and east next to the river, and south next to Cleveland Avenue. New shopping centers and other commercial buildings have been built all over Fort Myers. Fortunately, much of the historic districts of the community and the older downtown area have retained much of their old charm. These days, downtown Fort Myers is filled with businesses that range from a convention center, to professional offices, to apartments, to financial houses, to jewelers, to antique stores, to cafes, to restaurants, and to boutiques. In addition, Centennial Park is a popular place for locals and visitors alike to gather for functions and events such as concerts.
