About our neighborhood, the 10th Street Design District
in Naples, FL. (From the Naples Daily News Citifest Program)

Years ago, when the train came through town, it stopped at the Naples Depot at 10th Street and 5th Ave South. Since the train brought most of the goods into town, it was only natural that service businesses would “set up shop” near the Depot. And thus Naples’ first industrial district was born!

The train last ran in the early 1970s, but The Seaboard Air Line Railway passenger station, Collier County's newest historical museum, has recently undergone an amazing restoration. Our Depot welcomes visitors back to the railroading boom days of the Roaring Twenties and explains how generations of Southwest Floridians used technology and transportation to conquer a vast and seemingly impenetrable frontier. The Naples Depot Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is conveniently located in downtown Naples newly revitalized 10th Street Design District.

The 10th Street Design District, which lies between 7th Avenue North and 5th Avenue South and between US 41 and Goodlette Frank Road, is a lovely, easily-accessible, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood of businesses anchored by The Naples Depot. Our neighborhood is traditionally known as the downtown district for friendly, family-owned local businesses that cater to the needs of Naples’ residents
