Copeland is an unincorporated community located in eastern Collier County, Florida, United States. It is at the junction of State Road 29 and Janes Memorial Scenic Drive (County Road 837). Copeland lies along the western border of the Big Cypress National Preserve, and wedged beside the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park to the east. The hamlet of Jerome is a few miles to the north, while Carnestown lies a few miles to the south at the intersection of State Road 29 and U.S. Route 41.Logging Era: 1943-1957During the Second World War the demand for cypress brought the timber industry to southwest Florida. The newly established Lee Cypress Lumber Company began operations in 1943 and designated Copeland as a company town. The operation was overseen by superintendent J.R. Terill, and Copeland served as the base camp for over three-hundred sawyers, railroad workers, and their families. Homes were made of cypress and assembled on-site as the population increased. Most of the people living at Copeland were African-American and the community was segregated with separate facilities for white and black workers. The town boasted a commissary and a few \"jukes\" for entertainment. Almost all functions including entertainment, were overseen by the Lee Cypress Company. A large railroad depot handled the logs that were brought out of the Fakahatchee Strand and other parts of the Big Cypress Swamp, the current Jane's Scenic Drive serving as the main railroad line through Fakahatchee. The logs were sent to the massive sawmill complex in Perry, Florida, four-hundred miles north. The remaining steam locomotive used to carry timber is on display Collier County Museum in Naples.Copeland's population dwindled quickly in the late fifties as the timber industry completed its operations in 1957. The population was estimated at 275 people in 2006. Copeland also lies within a Florida panther habitat. Copeland was founded in 1932 in honor of David Graham Copeland, a U.S. Navy engineer who helped plan the Tamiami Trail and began a family-owned farming business at this location.Copeland is part of the Naples–Marco Island Metropolitan Statistical Area.Copeland was also the location of the low-budget, 1978 horror movie, Blood Stalkers.
