Once known only as “the other side of the river,” Cape Coral is a fairly new addition compared to some of the much older cities and towns. Leonard and Jack Rosen purchased a 103-square mile piece of land in 1957, started development on November 4 of that year, and not soon after, the city started to come to life. In 1958, the Cape Coral Parkway was “born,” and on June 10, 1958, the first residents called Cape Coral home. Waterview homes were selling in 1959 for $990 while waterfront homes sold for $1,900, and riverfront properties sold for $3,390.
