Copperstone is a master-planned housing development located in the city of Parrish, Florida. Located in Manatee County, this small gated community is only minutes away from some of the most historical locations in the United States. Before the Spanish started exploring these parts in the beginning of the 16th century, various Native Americans had inhabited the area now known as modern-day Manatee County for thousands of years. Most of the Archaic Tribes had gone extinct before the arrival of the Spanish and had been replaced by tribes such as the Muscogee. Fast forward to the mid-19th century, the United States had officially named Florida a state and Manatee County was established. The first settlers chose to name the county after the Sea Cow, which were known to inhabit the Manatee River in those days, but have since then been hunted to extinction. Around the time Manatee County was in its infancy, a man by the name of Crawford Parrish and his wife, Mary Bratcher VanZant, moved to the area of present-day Parrish where they purchased a homestead. Parrish’s son was a member of the Florida House of Representative and pushed to have a post office built.
