History

Naples is the primary city name, but also Coco River are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is Naples, Florida. The city of Naples was founded in 1886 by former Confederate general and Kentucky U.S. Senator John Stuart Williams and his partner, Louisville businessman Walter N. Haldeman. The name Naples caught on when promoters described the bay as "surpassing the bay in Naples, Italy". By the summer of 1888, Naples had a population of about 80 people, and the first hotel opened in 1889. After a hurricane in 1945, a fill was required to repair the damage. The Aqualane Shores Association was incorporated as a non-profit corporation on February 3, 1966. It served lot owners in the area roughly bounded by the Bay of Naples to the east, Gordon Drive to the west and the land between 14th Avenue and 21st Avenue S, as well as Marina Drive, Forrest Lane, and Southwinds Drive. Thirty years later, in 1996, a state-mandated city master plan renamed the area the Aqualana Shores Neighborhood and extended its boundary west to the Gulf of Mexico, east to the Bay and south to Jamaica Channel. The numerous canals and waterfront homes add a distinctive feature to the south portion of Naples and provide access to the gulf of Mexico for many homeowners. Today, the Wyatt family is credited with the construction of Naples' first beach. In 1949, Reginald Wyatt II asked Mr. Rust to sell him the 296 acres (120 ha) from Jamaica Channel to 15th Avenue S. The Jamaica Channel was widened, one canal was dredged, and 14th Ave S was created.
