The Wiggins Bay area has long been recognized among the most popular of neighborhoods, yet in terms of history, it is proper to note the area is actually named after one of the earliestfull-time residents of Naples. In the mid 19th century, that era just after the end of the Civil War, Joe Wiggins and Roger Gordon are credited as being the very first homesteaders in this region which was more widely known as Calusa Indian country. Joe Wiggins is said to have actually sailed-in through the inlets that now bear his name. Wiggins and Gordon established the first trading post in Naples. As the story goes, they promoted the beauty of the bay as rivaling that affiliated with the Bay of Naples, ultimately leading to the later adoption of “Naples” as a city namesake. While the Bay was later named in honor of Joe Wiggins, the pass that runs among Port Royal in Old Naples is named in honor of Roger Gordon.
While much has changed around Wiggins Bay, the beauty of the area has remained the same. Modern trading posts, however, have become much more sophisticated.
