Your Guide To Parrish
Parrish, Florida was originally founded prior to the Civil War. In 1867, Crawford Parrish, a rancher and orange farmer, moved to the area and the community was eventually named after him. In 1939, a Florida guide was published and the town was described as a citrus-fruit and vegetable shipping center. As a shipping center, railroads played an active role in the area's growth. The Florida Gulf Coast Railroad Museum is a main attraction and a celebration of this rich history.
Today, Parrish offers many popular and vibrant communities, some with more of a rural feel with lots of open areas and green spaces, and others with a more active vibe. Most of the development here is located right along U.S. 301, with easy access to a corridor that is flourishing with activity, including restaurants, shopping, sports complexes, and areas of interest. Lakewood Ranch is just a short commute away, too. If you are looking for a great community that has both a "get away from it all" feel but still has access to everything, Parrish should be on your radar.
