The history of Everglades City is a long one. Starting with Florida crackers, pirates, fisherman, rum runners, smugglers, and airboaters’s just to name a few. To the day some of the old Florida homes and buildings can still be found in Everglades City. The courthouse now Everglades City’s City Hall can be found at the center of town still in it’s statuesque prime. Everglades City Hall has been renovated to it’s historical conditions with the great pillars and steps from the 1960′s. On down the old main drive you will find the Bank Building which is still used today as a Bed & Breakfast. Across the street you will find the old wash house or laundry now the Everglades City museum. Located a little further to the west, you will the world famous Rod & Gun Club now a restaurant and hotel with a great view of the Barron River. The building has changed very little since the 1950′s and has much memorabilia hanging on the walls from days past, cypress floors and much of the original flavor as old Florida.
