       Hendry County, Florida

Hendry County lies on the southern shore of Lake Okeechobee and touches the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. This is the Everglades - River of Grass. While the land and waters are ancient, the county is young and remains agricultural. Hendry County is the site of the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation. Hendry was formed from Lee County on May 11, 1923. The only two incorporated cities are LaBelle, the county seat, and Clewiston, home to US Sugar. Neighboring counties are Lee, Glades, Collier, Palm Beach, and Broward Counties.
