Hendry County is located in south central Florida, at the southwestern edge of Lake Okeechobee. Created in 1923, it was named in honor of an early settler, Major Francis Asbury “Berry” Hendry, a cattle rancher, politician, and officer in the Confederate Army. Major Hendry laid out the town of LaBelle, the eventual county seat, naming it after his daughters Laura and Belle. As of 2010, the population was 39,140. Over 72% of the county’s 1,190 square miles is used for agriculture, with the top crops citrus, sugarcane, and vegetables. The Caloosahatchee River forms the northern border of the county. The northern sawgrass marshes of the Everglades begin in Hendry County. The area is popular with fishermen and bird watchers.
Although LaBelle is the county seat, the largest city in Hendry County is Clewiston, on the shore of Lake Okeechobee. U.S. Sugar, the largest producer of sugarcane the the U.S., is based in Clewiston.
The county contains the majority of the nearly 82-square-mile Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation. About 500 Native Americans live on the reservation, which is home to the 12th largest cattle operation in the United States. It is the largest of the five Seminole reservations in Florida.
