About Fort Myers
Fort Myers is a city in Florida that's been rapidly growing in recent years. One reason the city is growing so fast is its proximity to beaches, recreation and other attractions.
Fort Myers is just minutes from the beaches and small coastal villages like Fort Myers Beach, a town about 10 minutes from the city. There you can enjoy white sand beaches that extend into the sparkling Gulf of Mexico. It also has a shopping and entertainment strip with bars, clubs, resorts and restaurants. With all this activity, it's no wonder the area draws a number of visitors and new residents.
Fort Myers was officially founded after the Civil War, with efforts headed by Captain Manual A. Gonzalez. Gonzalez had originally discovered the area as a soldier, responsible for delivering mail and supplies to the Union Army that had set up camp during the Seminole Indian Wars and the Civil War. When the fort was abandoned, Gonzalez saw his opportunity. Establishing a trading post near the empty fort, he traded beads, tobacco, gunpowder and animal hides with neighboring Native American tribes. Slowly a small community began to grow around the trading post.
In 1885, Fort Myers was officially incorporated, becoming one of the largest Florida cities on the Gulf Coast. That same year, the town welcomed one of its most famous residents, Thomas Edison. Edison built his winter home and laboratories in the area, and spent many years enjoying the local fishing and recreation.
The city began to grow quickly with the arrival of the railroad, and the community began to develop. In addition to Thomas Edison, Fort Meyers was also home to Harvey Firestone and Henry Ford, completing the trio was called the "Millionaire's Club" of that era. Today, you can tour the former estates of Ford and Edison and get a peek into Fort Myers' days gone by.
