HISTORICAL PLACES


AUDUBON HOUSE AND TROPICAL GARDENS

The construction of the Audubon House occurred between the years 1846 and 1849. At the time, Captain Geiger was one of Key West’s wealthiest men, and he wanted a home befitting of his family’s stature in the community.


THE GARDENS HOTEL

The Gardens Hotel Key West, formerly known as the Gardens Mansion, was built in the 1800s. The original building is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and still contains all of its historic charm, plus a few modern extras you've come to expect in a hotel.


KEY WEST HISTORIC MEMORIAL SCULPTURE GARDEN

Taking the lead from the many Key Westers vitally concerned with the history of our island and committed to creating a legacy to future generations, the Key West City Commission set aside a permanent park site for the Key West Historic Memorial Sculpture Garden.

Located on the original shoreline in Mallory Square, the sculpture garden opened in September 1997. It features 36 magnificently cast bronze busts of the men and women who have had the greatest impact on Key West. The garden retells the story of the island to over 1,000,000 visitors a year


LIGHTHOUSE TOWER & KEEPER'S QUARTERS

Almost immediately after the U.S. Navy established a base in Key West in 1823, the need for a lighthouse became evident. Erecting a lighthouse was essential in assuring the safe arrival of both military and commercial vessels navigating the shallow, reef-laden waters off the Florida Keys

THE GARDEN AT THE OLDEST HOUSE MUSEUM

Lilie Watlington, Francis and Emeline’s youngest daughter, never married and lived in the house until her death at age 80 in 1936. Earl Johnson, the great grandson of Francis and Emeline, resided in the house until his death in 1972. Thus, 322 Duval Street was occupied by the same family for 140 years.
