1. The Naples Pier Marker
Inscription.  Built in 1888 as a freight and passenger dock, the Naples Pier stands as a community landmark. Narrow gauge train rails spanning the length of the pier transported freight and baggage in the early 1900’s. Part of the structure as well as the post office located on the pier was razed by fire in 1922. Rebuilt after damage by hurricane in 1910, 1926, and 1960, it remains a public symbol of the area’s history.
 
Erected 1971 by Naples Jaycees in Cooperation with Department of State. (Marker Number F-157.)
