Markers: Sarasota History
This area, so named for its outcroppings of yellow limestone, was the home of Sarasota's first inhabitants - the prehistoric and Calusa Indians. Yellow Bluffs later became the homesite of William H. Whitaker, Sarasota's first known white settler. It was also the embarkation point of Judah P. Benjamin, member of the Confederate Cabinet, who fled America at the end of the War Between The States in 1865.
