The Harvard Club of Naples
Invites you to
Modern history of SW Florida by Jason Vuic, Author of
The Swamp Peddlers:
How Lot Sellers, Land Scammers, and Retirees
Built Modern Florida and Transformed the American Dream
Join fellow alumni for a fascinating discussion of Florida's raucous history.
In his book, The Swamp Peddlers, Jason Vuic chronicles how selling lots on installment transformed Florida
from an unaffordable dream for most people into the community we know today.
Along the way, changes begun in the 1950s spawned communities like Cape Coral, Port Charlotte and many more.
It brought huge increases in population and prosperity, but also sprawl, environmental damage, and fraud.
The growth frenzy led ultimately to the subprime mortgage crisis and many challenges we face today.
If you're interested in the history of our community, you won't want to miss this fascinating discussion.
In addition, they are extending free ground shipping for an order that totals over $75.
