Ledge stone Community Sign, Bonita Springs, Florida
Bonita Springs Florida is a beautiful place and properly named. Its hard to believe that not long ago it was a shack town by a river with the land being known as surveyor creek. In 1912 it was bought by a Tennessean named Ragsdale who thought it would be best for selling purposes to rename the land Bonita Springs inspired by stories of Indians using the creek for healing powers. He and a associate design and developed a small town situated along the coast. By the 1920's Barron Collier's southern railroad had been lengthen to reach boniata springs bringing with it a population boom that saw the growth of new business. The Everglades Wonder Garden's was opened by founders and proprietors Lester and Bill Piper. They attracted national attention with there shows featuring panthers, bears, alligators and other animals all native to florida. There business helped to put boniata springs on the map ( History of Bonita).
Once Us-41 and Interstate 75 were connected to the city, it's population and growth boomed and continues to expand today. Recent surveys by the United States Census Bureau show the number of people living in Bonita Springs growing from 33,000 in 2000 to 48,000 in 2015 (bonita springs population). Known for having a splendid and secluded beach scene the area is seen by many as a retirement haven.
