It’s a Centennial CROWD!

Sarasota County is celebrating its Centennial in 2021. But we’re not the only ones.

The spring of 1921 was a busy one up in Tallahassee. The General Assembly approved the creation of 6 new counties out of what had been 2…

Manatee County got carved into two, thereby creating Sarasota County.

But poor Desoto County? It became 6 separate counties in 1921

  • Charlotte
  • Desoto
  • Hardee
  • Highlands
  • Glades

Let’s just be thankful they

didn’t call our county Mosquito. Who ever thought up that name?

See all the county borders established and altered from 1820 to 1936.

  1. That’s great Michael! The 3rd piece in the set, for sharpening, is often lost. My personal theory is that the kids in the family probably took it to poke a snake out of its hole LOL

  2. What’s the story behind the carving set above? I have the knife and fork in the set. The brand name on the fork was Remington.

We'd love to hear what you have to say!
