The biggest vitalization of the region came in 1912, when J. Henry Ragsdale bought 2,400 acres of land around what was named Survey. He believed that the name Survey lacked appeal and changed the name of the area to Bonita Springs in order to attract new residents.
His purchase also led to the addition of railroads and a highway system, dubbed the Tamiami Trail because it connected Tampa to Miami. With its completion, Southwest Florida was connected via roadway to the rest of the country.
