The self-interests of cattlemen, merchants, railroad men, industrialists and inventors gave birth to Fort Myers, but the Fort Myers of today is also the legacy of civic-minded and philanthropic women. Meet these remarkable and unpredictable women in this 90-minute mix of comedy and heroine-ism.
Meet the rancher’s grieving wife and the newspaper editor, the bride and the powerful business woman, the sawmill worker’s daughter, the pianist, and the courageous and beautiful “woman of color,” among others, who transformed Fort Myers from a cowboy town into the cultural center of southwest Florida.
You’ll be amazed.
