Palm Harbor Real Estate
Originally Palm Harbor was to be a part of the towns around the St. Petersburg / Clearwater districts. In the late 19th century it was known as Sutherland, an abbreviation for Southern Land and Development Company, which oversaw its growth. In 1925 the name was changed to Palm Harbor.
The worldwide economic Depression of the 1920s prevented it from growing into a city and it remained unincorporated within Pinellas County. Today the town paints a different picture. A vibrant community with approximately 65,000 residents, it is steadily emerging as a favorite relocation area for people from all over the world given its small-town charm.
