The History of Punta-Gorda
What's in a name? In this case: "Fat" (Punta) and "Point" (Gorda), which accurately describes the shape of the point of land that jets out into Charlotte Harbor. Originally settled by Union Army veterans who homesteaded the area a decade after the Civil War ended, it was not until the Florida Southern Railroad made Punta Gorda its southern-most stop in 1886 that the land developers and tourists discovered the area.
Like many cities on the west coast of Florida, phosphate mining was a big part of Punta Gorda's economic success in the late 19th century as it was a shipping point for phosphate mined just to the north.
Punta Gorda contributed to the WWII efforts with a U.S. Army airfield being used to train combat air pilots. After the war, developers laid out 55 miles of canals 100' wide and 17' deep and sold home sites to retirees and investors.
In 2004, Hurricane Charley moved through the area and devastated many homes, buildings, and much of the downtown waterfront. Rebuilding resulted in an opportunity to make improvements both to building codes and the local water front areas.
