The Apollo Beach area was in the past used mainly for agriculture. Its low elevation and mangrove terrain made living there practically impossible about a century ago. The Dickman family acquired land in the area in the early 1920s using it for annual farming and grazing. Considering its location relative to Tampa, Bradenton and U.S. Route 41, Paul Dickman felt the area would make a great waterfront community. His family then proceeded to hire a Miami engineering firm to help lay out a subdivision.
The area was named Tampa Beach by three businessmen from New York who acquired land there in the early 1950s. It was thought the association to a big city like Tampa would be more helpful in stimulating the interest of home buyers. A retired Michigan businessman Francis Corr acquired the land in 1957 after the previous developers ran into financial challenges. He changed the name to La Vida Beach, but his wife Dorothy was said to have suggested a year later that the name be changed to Apollo Beach.
The development of the community was confronted with several challenges, including regulatory obstacles. One of these hurdles was the Growth Management Act, which was passed in 1972, aimed at regulating growth in the state of Florida. The Corr family continued with development efforts nonetheless and Apollo Beach is today a flourishing community boasting a serene and appealing environment.
