Port Charlotte history:

Though not a city, Port Charlotte is one of the most populated areas in the county. It was created by the General Development Corporation that, at one time, developed many of the subdivisions and communities on the west coast. The corporation no longer exists.

Hurricane Charley on 13 August 2004 hit the area hard. The storm was poised to come ashore in Tampa, but at the last minute, turned into Charlotte Harbor causing great damage and flooding in this area as well as in Punta Gorda. The area has had property values increase in large increments due to the speculation after the hurricane and the need for new or repaired housing.
