HOA Educational Program - When Cattle Were King - Ted Ehmann

Tuesday, February 18, 2020

When Cattle was King Punta Gorda’s real history was as a frontier cattle town. In this course, you will become familiar with Florida’s best-known cattle kings and how they gained great wealth and power along the Peace River. Punta Gorda’s cattle port and later Lee County’s Punta Rassa port grew due to the increasing market for beef in Cuba. Discover Charlotte County’s trade history with Cuba and Cattle’s Golden Age. Illustrating this golden age was the famous American artist, Frederick Remington who came to Punta Gorda on vacation. Ehmann will provide many priceless paintings, maps and photos of this unique local history.
