HISTORIC EVERGLADES CITY

This area was settled in the 1870s as a farming and fishing community. The Storter family bought a homestead on the river in 1889 and lodged visiting sports fishermen at what is now the Rod & Gun Club.

In 1923 Barron Collier selected the little village of Everglades as the headquarters for the construction of the Tamiami Trail (US-41) from Tampa to Miami and the seat of his new Collier County.

Our historic City Hall building (behind the stage) was once the County Courthouse. The County moved to East Naples in 1962 after the population had shifted. You will notice many Olde Florida houses that have been lovingly restored in our neighborhood.
