Bonita Springs History
The Bonita Springs area was originally called "survey" because that's what Army Corps of Engineers surveyors called the area when they were mapping out southern Florida in the 1870s. Developers made their way to the area and thought, that's not such a great name for drawing in the tourists so they decided that Bonita Springs would be a much better name. People began visiting and finally settling in the Bonita Springs area via the Fort Myers and Southern Railroad in the 1920s. The boom to the development happened shortly after the opening of Interstate 75. Today, Bonita Springs, located in Lee County, is home to about 53,000 residents with a total of 41 mi.², and 35 miles of that is land with nearly 6 miles of water.
