Ep. #32 Ask An Expert: History of Cape Coral

by Tim Hart | Oct 11, 2018 2:57:00 PM

Wendy Schroder, President of the Cape Coral Historical Museum, joined me to discuss the history of Fort Myers on this episode of the HartBeat Show Podcast. This is an ongoing series on the history of SWFL that I am bringing to you guys.

This one interview was a little easier for me, since I was born and raised in Cape Coral. Actually, my kids are 4th generations Floridians with Grandaddy’s parents homesteading in Cape Coral in the early 1900’s.

Wendy shared several stories of the original settlers of Cape Coral and the timeline to now. We talk about the Rose Gardens, Wild Bill Belvin, The Rosen Brothers and many other interesting facts about Cape Coral.

Check this out and let me know what you think. Feel free to share this video with anyone that may be interested in the history of Cape Coral.
