FLOR500, Garden 415 Harry Higel, Mayor (1867–1921) After working to have Sarasota incorporated in 1902, Harry Higel was elected mayor three times. Higel was a director of both the Bank of Sarasota and the Seaboard Air Line Railway. With two partners he named a new subdivision Siesta on the Gulf, built the Higelhurst Hotel there and promoted it. The name “Siesta” gradually came to be applied to the whole of Sarasota Key.
