Classic coastal styled single family homes whose residents embody the bold spirit of neighbors past.
Originally recorded as Second, Third and Fourth Streets SE by Lee County the history of the “Dam” streets was profiled by Karen Grace, board member Boca Grande Historical Society. As the story goes, there was a Tampa gentleman who was building a house on Third St. when his lumber company called asking for an address to deliver supplies they were referred to the gentleman's fishing captain. When asked for the name of the street, the captain replied, "Damfino." Someone at the lumber company had a great sense of humor because he painted the name on a piece of wood and stuck it into the ground at the corner of E. Railroad Ave. and Third St. SE. Not long after, residents of Fourth St. happened to be cocktailing together and someone suggested they come up with a more imaginative name for their street. "Who cares," said someone else in the crowd and Damficare Street was born. Boca Grande resident Kay Reed gets the credit for changing the name of Second St. She lived at the end of the road and one day produced a unique totem pole sign declaring her street Damfiwill.
Today’s “Dam” streets are home to classic coastal styled single family homes whose residents embody the bold spirit of neighbors past.
