Clearwater’s history dates back to around 1835 when the army constructed Fort Harrison as an outpost. The fort overlooked Clearwater Harbor which is now part of Harbor Oaks, a housing development. Many military personnel chose to live around the fort and grow crops on the land, which led to population growth in the early 1900s. Clearwater’s military background led the city to be utilised in World War II with many hotels becoming barracks for the soldiers that were training in the area.

In recent years, Clearwater has stepped away from military training and has diversified into a thriving and vibrant economy that employs over 50,000. The city is home to industries such as sales and office, science, and services, with companies such as Morton Plant Hospital, Tech Data, and Honeywell employing the majority of residents in the city.
