Goodland

Mar 24, 2017

The village of Goodland in Collier County is marked as the official site where Hurricane Wilma made Florida landfall during the record-breaking 2005 Atlantic Hurricane season. However, News-Press storyteller Amy Bennett Williams tells us that many years before that, the quaint fishing village served as the vital backdrop for childhood visits with her grandfather.  For her, the community and it’s long-preserved character are infused with touchstone memories, formative experiences and provided that initial attraction that eventually led her to build a life here in Southwest Florida.
