Marco Island

Calusa Indians, cracker pioneers and condo dwellers have all made their mark on Marco Island. The Calusa left behind shell mounds--and much more. By the 1960s, most of the pioneer outpost was owned by the Deltona Corporation, which began dredging canals for waterfront homesites--until environmentalists sued in a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court.
