Labelle's Link to Cattle
Initially a simple settlement on the Caloosahatchee River, it was an area primarily home to cattlemen and trappers. Named by its founder, Confederate Army Captain Francis Hendry, by combining the names of his two daughters (Laura and Belle), Labelle is the seat of Hendry County.
Labelle has strong cattle roots and Hendry established himself as "The Cattle King of South Florida" as he built his cattle business after the Civil War. He accumulated some 25,000 acres of land which grazed some 50,000 head of cattle.
Hendry was among the very first Florida cattlemen to ship cattle to the island of Cuba. His home still stands today, is on the National Register of Historic Places, and open to the public for tours.
Today, Labelle remains a largely rural community with thousands of acres of citrus farms and cattle ranges. It's primary sources of employment for it's 5,000 or so residents are the court house, city hall, and local agricultural-related businesses. Labelle hosts an annual Swamp Cabbage Festival to pay homage to both it's agricultural past as well as the Florida state tree.
