Heitman Evans Building, Fort Myers

     The Heitman Evans Building is located at 2235 First Street, Fort Myers.   In the early 1900’s, Harvie Heitman convinced Edward  Evans (a former mayor of Fort Myers) to join him in creation of the Heitman Evans Company.  This was to be a hardware and sporting goods store.  Evans was to be the manager; Heitman the silent partner.  Heitman spent $40,000 on the building.   It was three stories.   His goal was to build the most modern hardware store in America.      The building was orange in color.  It had 12 inch thick walls.   It featured an Otis elevator.

The building is now a rental facility for lawyers and other professionals.
