naples historic district

Visitors to Naples are likely impressed by all of the exciting new development, but for longtime residents, they’re sure to be just as dazzled by the historic charm of the community. While ambitious developers see a real need for more modern buildings and homes, others are working to preserve the Naples Historic District.

Examples include Cottage Rose, a small cottage that dates back to the 1930s, situated along 7th Avenue South and located just outside the district. With a nod to Old Naples, the house wasn’t knocked down to build a new, more modern home, but instead was lovingly restored. It’s something the Naples Historical Society would like to see more of, preserving old homes and bringing them back to their former glory.

Old Naples once drew in

For the City of Naples, though, the exciting new
