Bahia Honda Key history

The first mention of the park dates back to the end of the 19th century. More precisely, even the island itself Bahia Honda Key. At this time, the island belonged to the Henry Flagler railway concern. At the beginning of the next century, it was planned to build a railway. And it was successfully completed, but only in 1935 it was demolished by a hurricane.

A little later, the remains of this road were renamed “US-1” and became a real historical monument. The surviving part of the railway bridge has become a local attraction with which you can explore the surroundings.
