The city of Steinhatchee is a complacent fishing community which has retained its pristine natural surroundings and serenity for over a century. The Steinhatchee River is renowned for its surplus of trout and redfish, as the river’s uncongested waters challenge the most skilled anglers. The river also has a deep water port adequate for larger vessels and off-shore fishing excursions.
Steinhatchee combines the ambiance of the 19th century with the conveniences of the 20th. Victorian waterfront homes line the shores and footpaths and gardens sequester the surroundings. Steinhatchee is often referred to as “The Best Kept Secret in Florida.” Come find out why.
Jumping to the 1700′s, the Seminoles, Creek and other Muskogean peoples continued coming down to Florida. The English were also exploring and here again no major development was undertaken. In the 1780′s the Spanish government encouraged migration into Florida through land grants. The Seminoles gradually established a foothold in Florida — and with it a hostile environment which brought the eventual confrontation with the United States.
