State Road 80 east from Ft. Myers in Lee County meanders through many older communities. There are the river towns of Alva, Olga, and Ft. Denaud. (duh-no) And on the south side of roadway there’s Charleston Park. If you weren’t looking for it – you’d never know it was there. But it has been since 1926, and many descendants of the original residents who worked in the surrounding fields and groves are still there. WGCU’s Valerie Alker took a ride through Charleston Park this week with longtime community activist Alice Washington and recorded her story.
