History of Fort Myers:
On May 10, 1904, access to the Fort Myers area was greatly improved with the opening of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, connecting Punta Gorda to Fort Myers. This route provided Lee County both passenger and freight railroad service.
In 1908, the Arcade Theater was constructed in downtown Fort Myers. It served originally as a vaudeville house and was an auditorium that Fort Myers resident Thomas Edison sat in to view his first films, with his friends Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone. The Arcade Theatre was eventually converted into a full movie house, with a wall dividing the stage to form two screening rooms. It now hosts to the Florida Repertory Theatre, a performing arts hall.
It was in Fort Myers, Florida that Edison would do the majority of his research and planting of his exotic plants and trees, sending any results or sample rubber residues up to West Orange, New Jersey, to his large Thomas A. Edison “Invention Factory” (now preserved in the Thomas Edison National Historical Park). Through Edison’s efforts, the royal palms lining Riverside Avenue (now McGregor Boulevard) were imported and planted and would become the reason for Fort Myers’s “City of Palms” nickname.
After testing 17,000 plant samples, Edison eventually discovered a source in the plant Goldenrod (Solidago leavenworthii). Thomas Edison died in 1931, and the rubber project was transferred to the United States Department of Agriculture five years later.
In 1916, automobile magnate Henry Ford purchased the home next door to Edison’s from a Robert Smith of New York, which Ford called “the Mangoes”. Ford’s craftsman style bungalow was built in 1911 by Smith. Ford, along with Harvey Firestone and Thomas Edison, was generally considered the three leaders in American industry at the time, and often worked and vacationed together. All three were part of a very exclusive group titled “the Millionaires’ Club”. The three men are now memorialized in statues in downtown Fort Myers’ Centennial Park
In 1924, with the construction of the Edison Bridge, which was named after the city’s most famous winter resident, the city’s population steadily grew. In the decade following the bridge’s construction, the city experienced its first real estate boom. Several new residential subdivisions were built beyond Downtown, including Dean Park, Edison Park, and Seminole Park Edison Park, located across McGregor Boulevard from the Edison and Ford properties, includes a number of Fort Myers’ most stately homes. The historic development showcases a variety of architectural styles and is known for its community activities and strong neighborhood ties.
On February 11, 1931, the 84th birthday of its namesake, the Edison Bridge was opened. Edison dedicated the bridge and was also the first to drive across it.
In 1947, Mina Edison deeded Seminole Lodge to the City of Fort Myers in memory of her late husband for the enjoyment of the public. By 1988, the adjacent Henry Ford winter estate was purchased and opened for public tours in 1990. The combined properties today are now known as the Edison and Ford Winter Estates.
