Bokeelia View

Bokeelia, on the north end on Pine Island in Lee County, Florida, has a distinct tropical flavor with this view of palm trees overlooking Charlotte Harbor. This small community of less than 2,000 was home to Spanish fishing camps that served Key West and Cuba as early at 1765. In the early 1900's settlers began to arrive, raising tropical fruits and palms for sale which they do to this day. In 1916 a Maryland native and Annapolis graduate, Captain Peter Haines retired from the navy after a successful career and built a house in Bokeelia patterned after those that the government buit for its troops in the tropics.
