Sarasota County was formed in June 1921 from the south western portion of Manatee County. However the first settlements in the present day county date back from 1841 before Manatee was created from Hillsborough County. Many of the early pioneer settlers were the Whitaker, Webb, Knight, Crowley, Abbe, Tucker, Edwards, Bidwell, Gillespie, Nichols, Wilson, and Palmer families.

Our boardering counties are:
Manatee - Desoto - Charlotte
