FORTUNES MADE & LOST IN THE FLORIDA KEYS by the late historian and archaeologist IRVING R EYSTER
April 17 2017 Time: Monday 6:30 pm FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Island Community Church, mm 83
The audio-visual presentation will show many of the industries and businesses from the past going back to the early 1800’s through today. Many fortunes were made and lost in the Florida Keys. Indians had trade here long ago. Stories of the wreckers, the salt industry, the tobacco factories in Key West, pineapple farming, coconuts and the turtles, sponges and the building of what are many of today’s subdivisions. Many of these things brought millions to the owners of the companies and employed hundreds. Today they are all part of our rich past history. For more information call Barbara at 305-393-0940.
