Living in Palm Harbor, Florida
Palm Harbor was originally settled in 1877 by J.C. Craver. He had been instructed by a physician to seek a warmer climate far away from Illinois after being diagnosed with tuberculosis. J.C. Carver built a cottage in the area that was once known as Yellow Bluffs and later opened a general post office and store on what is now the intersection of Tampa Road and County Road 1. In the 1890’s, the new railroad brought travelers and tourists to the budding community that consisted of cattle farms and citrus groves. The area called Yellow Bluffs grew and formed into three towns; Ozona, Crystal Beach and Palm Harbor. The name change to Palm Harbor became official in 1925 and this Pinellas county community grew and flourished as more people discovered its many benefits.
