Bonita Springs Real Estate 

Located on both Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico Bonita Springs is the northernmost city on the west coast of Florida that has "tropical" climate.  Before the Spanish came in 1539, thousands of Calusa Indians inhabited Bonita Springs.  Within a couple of centuries the Calusa Indians were decimated by European diseases and slave trading.  In 1870 government surveyors in a remote part of Southwest Florida pitched camp near a medicinal spring that local Indians believed could heal the sick.  When the crew left the site became known as Survey and the stream Surveyor's Creek. 

 

During the next decade only a few homesteaders moved in and in 1887 the first school was built.  When Braxton B. Comer bought 6000 acres of land around Survey in the late 1880's the population more than doubled.  In 1888 he brought 50 Negro families from Alabama with mules and equipment to work his large plantation growing pineapples, bananas, coconuts and other kinds of fruit.  In 1901 a Post Office was opened and later in 1910 the two story Eagle Hotel was in business catering visitor attracted to the area's bounty of hunting and fishing.  In 1912 the town of Survey was later renamed Bonita Springs by a Tennessean named Ragsdale a land developer who purchased 2400 acres, surveyed the area and laid out a small town with streets and avenues named for potential buyers.  He also renamed Surveyor's Creek to  Imperial River.

Decades later with the opening of I-75 and the US 41 bypass, access to the area has brought shopping malls, office facilities and golf courses.  Today, Bonita Springs is a beautiful affluent area with beaches, high-end restaurants, recreational facilities and beautiful homes.
