History of Manatee County
The area now known as "Manatee County" was inhabited by Native Americans for thousands of years. The southern mouth of the Manatee River is the likely landing site for the De Soto Expedition and is the location of the U.S. National Park Service's DeSoto National Memorial.
Manatee County was created in 1855. It was named for the Florida manatee (commonly called a "sea cow" though it is distantly related to the elephant), which is endangered and the state's official marine mammal.
Every January, the Manatee County Fair takes place at the fairgrounds.Read More
