What is now the Caloosa Belle began as the Caloosahatchee Current, a publication established in 1922 to help bring about the establishment of Hendry County. In 1923 Hendry County was, indeed, carved from the eastern side of Lee County.
The county seat is LaBelle, which is situated in the western side of the county on the Caloosahatchee River. Hendry is the No. 1 citrus growing county in the state, but development is certain. This area holds promise as an eco-tourism destination and is also a sportsman's dream with fishing, hunting and boating within easy reach.
In addition, if you can't resist the occasional lure of the bright lights, both the East and West Coast of Florida are within easy driving distance.
