INDIAN KEY by Irving R Eyster and Bob Eyster
April 15 2019 Time: Monday, 6:30 pm FREE AUDIO-VISUAL PRESENTATION
Island Community Church, mm 83
Indian Key has a rich and exciting history inclusive of Indians, Spanish Conquistadors, pirates, wreckers, politicians, ship builders, and the U.S. Navy. It gained prominence as a wrecking village from which ships sailed to salvage the many shipwrecks on the treacherous reef just off shore. This was the domain of Jacob Housman, who was known as the most notorious wrecker in Florida. It was also the locale of the first resort in South Florida. Once ashore, one could find a hotel, bowling alley, bar, general store, post office, blacksmith and carpentry shop, as well as warehouses for salvaged goods. The island transformed into the busiest port between St. Augustine and Key West. Indian Key became the first County Seat of Dade County (now Miami-Dade County) before Miami existed, and it remained a major part of South Florida history, extending beyond the Indian Key Massacre and the burning of the village. Indian Key still has many stories to tell through the remains of structures which were part of this once thriving island community. Call Barbara at 305-393-0940 for more information.
