Origin of the "Dam" Streets: How did Boca Grande streets get their names? Some streets are named after people, like Gilchrist and Wheeler, or their location; for example Gulf Shore Lane and Bayou. The story about the origin of the "Dam" streets was told at a 1993 cocktail party by a reliable source who is also a great story teller.

It goes something like this; Lee County recorded the streets as Second, Third and Fourth Streets SE. This makes sense since many streets in Boca Grande are numbered. As the story goes, there was a Tampa gentleman who was building a house on Third St. When his lumber company called asking for an address to deliver supplies they were referred to the gentleman's fishing captain. When asked for the name of the street, the captain replied, "Damfino." Someone at the lumber company had a great sense of humor because he painted the name on a piece of wood and stuck it into the ground at the corner of E. Railroad Ave. and Third St. SE.

Not long after, residents of Fourth St. happened to be cocktailing together and someone suggested they come up with a more imaginative name for their street. "Who cares," said someone else in the crowd. That did it, Damficare Street was born. According to my source, Kay Reed gets the credit for changing the name of Second St. She lived at the end of the road and one day produced a unique totem pole sign, declaring her street Damfiwill. An employee in the Lee County E911 Program's Addressing Office remembered the paperwork making those the official names of the streets. However, it's been many years ago, and the documents are no longer available in their system, she explained. Article by Karen Grace, board member of the Boca Grande Historical Society.

Historic Village of Boca Grande

Welcome to the historic center of Boca Grande Village. This area is the heart of Gasparilla island. Homes in the area are walking distance to all of the quaint charm of the old village. Get your golf cart and cruise the downtown shopping, dining, and enjoy the area.

Its name - Spanish for "Big Mouth '' - comes from the mouth of the waterway, called Boca Grande Pass, at the southern tip of the island. The pass was used as a busy shipping point for many years as the waters in the pass are naturally deep. Processed phosphate from the Bone Valley region was loaded onto waiting ocean-going cargo vessels via the Seaboard Air Line Railroad at the dock located on the southern tip of the island. Shipping business to the island declined in the late 1970s as it was no longer cost effective to ship phosphate by rail to Boca Grande when it could be loaded at Tampa. The phosphate plant at Boca Grande was old and its tons-per-hour rate was slow. Therefore, it made economic sense to discontinue the operation. Evidence of the island's industrial past can still be seen.

There are no gas stations in the village of Boca Grande, with the exception of a street pump at Boca Grande Marina, so many local residents use a golf cart as their main mode of transportation. On any given day in Boca Grande, you will see golf carts, as well as some automobiles, making their way throughout downtown. A Lee County ordinance designates all but two streets as golf cart paths. Drivers must be at least 14 years old to operate a golf cart on these designated streets.

Boca Grande provided the backdrop for Denzel Washington's movie, Out of Time, where the quiet village was renamed "Banyan Key" in reference to the banyan trees that populate the island. Scenes for the 2006 film based on Carl Hiaasen's book Hoot were also filmed on the island, which was again renamed for the filming. This time it became "Coconut Cove".

Boca Grande's serene beauty also makes it a destination for high-profile weddings and residences for the elite seeking privacy. Sara Blakely (Spanx founder and owner) and Jesse Itzler were married on Boca Grande in 2008, while the Bush family and Audrey Hepburn have called it home seasonally.
