A History of Our Area
The Timucua and the Calusa Indians were the earliest known inhabitants of the area. However, both of these groups were impacted by war and disease from the Spanish exploration in the early 1500s. In the 19th century, the Creek and the Seminole were known to live and hunt in this area.
In 1819, the United States gained control of Florida and the first American or European settlers were encouraged to settle here by the Armed Occupation Act of 1842. This act created generous land grants and other incentives for settlers who were willing to defend themselves against native populations.
In 1842, Henry Washington conducted the first survey of the area and in 1849 Dr. John Westcott completed an extensive survey of the area including mapping many of the local lakes. In 1883, Col. Henry Haines who worked for Henry Plant, successfully built the first railroad passing just north of what will become Winter Haven. The arrival of the railroad created real growth for the area. In 1884, the area was platted and would first be known as Harris Corners. Later, the name Winter Haven was suggested in reference to the area’s pleasant climate.
In 1911, the city of Winter Haven was incorporated. Florida’s potential as a place to live and visit was realized but the Great Depression slowed the growth in Florida until after World War II. Many beautiful single-family homes were built at this time in the colonial revival style. Over 50 of these homes are on the National Register of Historic Places, noted or their architectural style and grace. If you move into our senior living community, you may choose to take a drive by these homes and visit the quaint shops and restaurants that Winter Haven offers.
