Kissimmee was first settled by J. H. Allen, who operated the first cargo steamboat on the Kissimmee River. Early settlers made their living from wild cows that roamed the Kissimmee River Valley, descendants of cattle left behind by Spanish explorers in the 1500s. In 1881, Hamilton Disston purchased four million acres of Florida land as part of a deal to drain south Florida with canals and based his operations in Kissimmee. After his dredging made it possible for steamboats to navigate the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, Kissimmee became a port where cattle ranchers brought their livestock for shipment to Cuba and other destinations.
After the construction of railways and roads made steamboats obsolete, Kissimmee continued as a center for cattle ranching and agriculture. The advent of Walt Disney World and other theme parks in the 1970s turned Kissimmee into a tourist haven. It is now home to numerous attractions, including Old Town, Medieval Times, the Silver Spurs Rodeo, and the Warbirds Museum. Residents enjoy fishing, hiking, and boating in natural areas.
