Palm Harbor

Palm Harbor was originally called Sutherland after the Southern Land and Development Company. It was platted in 1888 as part of Hillsborough County. Its name went through several changes through the years. For a short time the name was Yellow Bluff, but due to the prevalence of Yellow Fever and not wanting the association of the disease connected to its name, Palm Harbor became the name of choice. The name was changed to Palm Harbor in 1925. There were two beautiful hotels with one overlooking Sutherland Bayou and the Gulf of Mexico. It became Southern Collage in 1902.
