Snead Island is a small island near Bradenton, Florida. The island is primarily residential, though there are two private dry boat storage facilities and remnants of a former palm tree nursery. Emerson Point Preserve is a 365 acres (1.48 km2) preserve operated by Manatee County on the western end of Snead Island. It includes several Native American mounds in the Portavant Mound Site.[1]


Much of the island is still undeveloped. Most of the island's residents are native Floridians, which is atypical in the surrounding Manatee County area.[citation needed]
