  Naples began as a quiet and affluent beach community in southwest Florida located between Fort Myers to the north and the Everglades to the south. The first settlers, Roger Gordon and Joe Wiggins, arrived in Naples in the late 1860's. A river and two inlets still bear their names. Naples is located at 26°09′11″N 81°47′55″W / 26.152941°N 81.798510°W onU.S. Highway 41 which is between  East Miami and  North Fort Myers.

On the way to Naples’s historic Pier is Palm Cottage which is built in 1895 and it is reputedly Naples' oldest house, where guided tours are offered in season. Other historic buildings include the Naples Commissary Building in Olde Naples, dating back to 1903, and the renovated Naples Depot (1927) and other railroad memorabilia. Naples quickly gained a reputation as a winter resort. Modern development began in the 1920s and by the end of the decade, railroads and the Tamiami Trail had pierced the rugged wilderness and unlocked the area’s enormous agricultural and resort potential. Florida’s first commercial oil well was drilled here in 1943, and the County’s cypress logging industry flourished well into the 1950s.
