A Rich History

In the past, the Bradenton and Sarasota area was known as Zarazote, later Fort Armistead, and then Sara Sota (1842) before the final name of Sarasota was established in 1902. After Florida became a U.S. territory in 1819, Fort Armistead was constructed along the bay. Some experts believe that the original Zarazote name is a reference to the daughter of a Conquistador named Sara. Native Americans originally settled the area, and the conflict between the region’s European settlers and Native Americans led to the Seminole War.

Arts and Culture

Artists have long been drawn to Sarasota. Today, residents and visitors alike can enjoy an array of arts and cultural entertainment including the Sarasota Orchestra founded in 1949, the Sarasota Ballet, and the Sarasota Opera. Sarasota is also an area hub for theater and film, thanks to the presence of the Asolo Repertory Theater, the Banyan Theater Company, Florida Studio Theatre, the Sarasota Players, the famous Sarasota Film Festival, and more.

Rich in natural beauty, arts, and cultural activities, wonderful historic homes, wonderful beaches, and a large and well-regarded education system, Sarasota is an excellent place to both visit and live.
