Lee County Bank Building

Fort Myers, Florida 33965, United States

Created By: Fort Myers CRA


Continue south along Hendry Street to the corner of Hendry and Main streets. On your right, at the northeast corner, is the Lee County Bank Building. The Lee County Bank Building was built by pineapple farming explorer James A. “Pineapple Jim” Hendry in 1911 as a general store and post office. The exterior was stuccoed in 1927 when the Lee County Bank, Title and Trust Company relocated into the building. In July 1932, the bank closed when unable to meet depositor demands during the Great Depression, but it was reopened the following March as the Lee County Bank, where that banking institution remained until 1965. An antique mall is the building’s current resident.
