History of Isleworth
The place traces its roots to the Chase family, a group of grove owners from Philadelphia who purchased land in the area after the US Civil War. Sidney and Joshua Chase referred to their property as “Isle of Worth”, because its citrus trees seemed naturally resistant to periodic cold snaps. In 1984, their descendants sold their lands to Arnold Palmer, who along with developers designed an extra large golf course for wealthy members. In 1993, the Tavistock Group purchased the golf course and surrounding and began developing large, expensive and magnificent mansions that are hallmark of the community.
