The first Episcopal Mission was established in Fort Myers in
1885 with eight adults and six children. It was called Saint
Luke's, after Saint Luke the physician, in honor of one of its
founding members, Dr. William Hanson. Construction of the
first parish building began in 1887 at the corner of Second
Street and Anderson Avenue.
As the parish grew, plans for a larger church were begun in
1920. The new church opened its doors at the corner of
Second Ave. and Woodford Ave. in 1923.
The congregation continued to grow, and a vision for our third

services here in 1969.
