Check out our city:
Clearwater began in 1841 with the establishment of a military outpost – Fort Harrison – during the Seminole Indian Wars. After the fighting ended, settlers moved into the area to take advantage of land grants from the federal government, and by 1859 their numbers justified opening a post office. The small farming community, then known as Clear Water Harbor, was incorporated 1891, and in 1912, when Pinellas County was formed out of what was then part of Hillsborough County, Clearwater became the county seat by virtue of building a new courthouse before its larger rival, St. Petersburg.
The city continued to grow steadily in the years following World War I and through the boom years of the 1920s, but slowed during the Great Depression of the 1930s. But real growth began in the Post War years, as air conditioning and other amenities, as well as a booming economy made life in Florida more attractive.
The Philadelphia Phillies have held their spring training here since 1946, and millions of visitors have flocked to top-rated Gulf beaches. In the following half-century, Clearwater expanded to become a city of more than 100,000 permanent residents, with an additional 30,000 seasonal residents and tourists.
