In Manatee County, the Village of Cortez has a rich history dating back to the late 19th century when it was founded by settlers from Carteret County, North Carolina. Initially known as Hunter’s Point, it was later renamed Cortez in honor of Hernando Cortez, the Spanish conquistador.

Due to its strategic location on the Gulf of Mexico, Cortez developed a unique maritime culture centered around the fishing industry.  The Village plays a crucial role in the local economy, providing employment opportunities and supporting related industries such as boat building and seafood processing. Additionally, Cortez has become a popular destination for tourists interested in enjoying authentic Florida seafood at local restaurants, experiencing deep sea fishing excursions, and exploring the Village’s charming waterfront and cultural centers.

The Village of Cortez has preserved its cultural heritage and continues to be a vital part of the region’s economy and identity.  Efforts to protect and promote Cortez’s historical significance and sustainable fishing practices are ongoing, ensuring that future generations can continue to appreciate its importance.

The Manatee County Clerk of Circuit Court and Comptroller is honored to play a role, including operating the Florida Maritime Museum, in preserving the heritage of Cortez for the benefit of Manatee County, its citizens and our visitors.
