Early History of Naples:

When Barron G. Collier first came to Florida, he could scarcely have foreseen what would transpire over the next 80 years within the county that would bear his name. His original purchase in what would soon be Collier County was Deep Lake Hammock. Before long, Collier would own some 90,000 acres within the county.

Prior to Barron Collier’s arrival in Southwest Florida, Walter N. Haldeman and his associates had founded the Naples town Improvement Company (The Naples Company) in 1887. At that time, Naples was beginning to attract tourists… mostly wealthy yachtsmen who would live on their boats while hunting and fishing in the nearby territory.

In 1890, the Naples Hotel and the original pier were constructed. Residents began to cluster their houses around these landmarks, paying $10 per lot. There was no development for several years, and the Tamiami Trail ended in Estero. The roads were rough, often pitted with sharp shells, and travelers had to use boats or ox cart to venture up the coast. Mail that made its way to Naples through Fort Myers was tossed up to the only Post Office at the end of the pier.

In 1915, the real growth of Naples began. Haldeman’s heirs transferred their property to the Naples Development Company, which quickly expanded the increasingly popular Naples Hotel.

By 1922, Barron Collier had purchased, among other things, 90% of Marco Island. He then turned his attentions to the completion of the Tamiami Trail project, which with the help of the State of Florida, was completed in 1928. The Trail was filled with the aid of a so-called “dipper dredge” and Model-T dump trucks.

During this time, two railroads completed lines to the area within 10 days of each other at the turn of 1927: the Atlantic Coast Line and the Seaboard Air line, further opening up the area. The restored Depot at 10th Street and Fifth Avenue South was the original end of the line.

The first Chamber of Commerce began in 1928, although the Great Depression delayed that venture until 1951 when it finally incorporated. The county had incorporated in 1923, the city in 1925.

In 1924, Marco Island received its major boost when the forerunners of the Deltona Corporation purchased the land from Barron Collier and his heirs.

The first bank to be established in the area, was the Bank of Naples in 1949. That facility became the main office for the Barnett Bank which in late 1990’s became The First Union Bank at the corner of Fifth Avenue South and 9th Street South.

Collier County has become a very long way from those early days of dipper dredges and $10 Lots. Naples and Marco Island are thriving and enviable communities. Glimpses of the past can still be found throughout Olde Naples, the Depot, various shell mounds and more.
