The History Of Lehigh Acres

In the early 1950s, a marketing guru named Lee Ratner owned nearly all of the undeveloped land east of Ft. Myers and decided to transform his expansive ranch into one of Florida's first major real estate developments. Working closely with friend and marketing protege Gerald Gould, Ratner launched one of the most brilliant land schemes in Florida history.

As people finally began to make their way down to Lehigh, a community began to take shape and flourish over the sandy terrain that had once been Lucky Lee Ranch. For decades, Lehigh represented the finest in middle-income Floridian living, perfect for vacationers and new families.

Today, Lehigh remains at its heart a strong, united community.
