During the late 1800s, Seminole Indians living in isolated areas in Southwest Florida began developing relationships with European pioneers migrating inland. In 1885, William H. Brown and his family settled in the Immokalee area 40 miles northeast of Naples and began trading with the Seminoles. Immokalee was named after the Seminole word for "my home."
