About the County / Lee County Arrest Search

The county is home to Fort Myers, which was built in 1850 during the Seminole Wars. This was during a time when Florida was still a territory and not yet a state. The Padilla family was one of the first families of the county and they still reside within its borders today. The county was officially created as an independent portion of Florida in 1887, being taken from Monroe County and Fort Myers being named county seat. It was named after the well-known confederate general Robert E. Lee who served during the American Civil War. In addition, the county is home to three detention centers.
