Palmetto

A nexus of modern federal and state highways, railroads, international airports, and seaports puts the City of Palmetto in the very heart of Florida's most desirable place to be.

Water brought the first settlers here in the middle 1800s and soon, yachtsmen and shippers discovered the beauty and allure of the mile-wide Manatee River. Fertile ground and a suitable climate attracted hearty young couples willing to accept the challenge of the future and the building of a community.

The City of Palmetto dates its beginning to the arrival of Samuel Sparks Lamb in 1868. He is called the "Father of Palmetto" and gave the town its name after his home state, South Carolina, the "Palmetto State". In 1897, Florida's governor signed the charter declaring Palmetto a City in the Sunshine State.
