The city of Millionaires! Naples, Florida is the second-highest proportion of millionaires per capita and one of the wealthiest cities in the United States! Not many realize the city was founded by a Confederate general and a newspaper publisher. General John Stuart Williams and Walter Haldeman were friends, and the unusual pair decided to form a joint venture in the late 1880s and develop the area. Marketing and promotions were handled by Haldeman, owner and publisher of the Louisville Courier-Journal. Through his magazines and newspapers, the two skillfully painted a picture akin to the sunny Italian peninsula promoting a mild climate with abundant sunshine and world-class fishing, along with plenty of wildlife for game hunting. Henceforth, the name caught on as they described the area as surpassing the bay in Naples, Italy. The road to success was paved when the railroad reached the city in 1927 and the Tamiami Trail was developed linking the area to Miami. Then, tragically the Great Depression and World War II hit, slowing development dramatically. Fortunately, after the war prosperity returned to the city and today, it is considered a haven for the affluent and others, especially yachting and boating enthusiasts.
