Bertha Palmer Touring Her Sarasota County Lands
Bertha Palmer was a Chicago millionaire and visionary. Her interest in the Gulf Coast of Florida on her arrival in Sarasota in 1910 set the stage for the growth and prosperity of Sarasota County. She bought over 80,000 acres in the Sarasota area and became involved in agriculture, livestock, real estate, banking and tourism. Her social standing helped put the community of 840 people on the map, and once she put down roots, Sarasota County would never be the same!
