FORTUNES MADE AND LOST IN THE FLORIDA KEYS
January 20 2020 Time: Monday 6:30 pm FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Island Community Church, 83250 Overseas Hwy, Islamorada
The audio visual presentation is from the late Irving Eyster archives. The 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. The presentation is free and open to the public.
