Venice in Sarasota County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Welcome to Heritage Court / Fred H. Albee, M.D.
Here you will find recorded the origins of this city. On your left is a memorial to Dr. Fred H. Albee who owned the land on which Venice is built, and on your right is a memorial to John Nolen who conceived the original city plan. This tablet is dedicated to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, which bought the land from Dr. Albee, retained the Nolen staff and built the nucleus of the city in conformance with the Nolen Plan. All this happened many years ago, between 1925 and 1927, and much of what was done in thos early days established the pattern which makes Venice today one of the most beautiful cities in the nation.
Fred H. Albee, M.D.
F.I.C.S., F.A.C.S., Sc.D.
A man of unsual talent
whose foresight, dedication
and determination made
development of this city
possible. His endeavors
during the years 1930-1940
helped to assure its growth
