The story of Cape Coral began in 1957, when two Baltimore brethren, Maryland, Leonard and Jack Rosen, crossed the Redfish Point known as the Caloosahatchee River near today's Fort Myers. Capetown Coral was established as Redfish Point. This year, Leonard and Jack Rosen, who were property designers and a small group of associates, bought a 103 square kilometer (270 km2) area known as Redfish Point for $678,000 and began developing the town in 1958 as a masterfully designed, pre-planned town.
This trend persisted in the early 1960', mainly at Redfish Point, just south of the Cape Coral Parkway. An important extension to Cape Coral was the building of the 3,400 foot (1,000 m) Cape Coral Brigde over the Caloosahatchee Lake which was opened in early 1964. A drive to Fort Myers before the viaduct was more than 32 km across Del Prado Boulevard and the Edison Break to pass over the rivers.
