City of Pinellas Park, Florida

The city was founded by a Philadelphia publisher named F. A. Davis, who purchased 12,800 acres of land around the turn of the 20th century. He created promotional brochures to lure northern residents (mostly Pennsylvanians) to the new area, highlighting the pleasant winter weather and the fertile soil. The main crop promoted at the time was sugarcane, and the city was officially incorporated in 1914.
