City of Fort Myers
Dean Park

Originally known as Hyde Park, this development was the work of John W. Dean, a winter visitor from Providence, Rhode Island. Consequently, Dean named his two major streets in the development Providence and Rhode Island.

The land was originally a tidal swamp adjoining Billy's Creek, but Dean began dredge and fill operations in 1912. Two years later, in 1914, the lots went on sale. Today, many fine examples of a variety of architectural styles from the 1920's can be found in Dean Park. Included are large frame vernacular houses, Mediterranean Revival style homes, and several excellent examples of Bungalow style architecture.
