It was in May 15, 1513 that Antonio de Herrera (chronicler) and Ponce de Leon (adventurer) headed in the direction of Florida searching for the fabled Fountain of Youth. They never located the Fountain; however, they did come across the Florida Keys.

Inhabitants followed while the indigenous Indian people, the mainland and Calusa tribes, were wiped out. The pioneers planted groves of breadfruit, key limes and tamarind. Pineapple farms in the Lower Keys thrived, and a huge pineapple factory was constructed, which supplied canned pineapple to nearly all of North America’s eastern part.

Other Key West, as well as Islamorada settlers became wreckers who retrieved cargo from ships that sank on the adjacent reefs. Several people say the wreckers intentionally drew in ships onto the sandbanks. Whether it is true or not, Key West became the nation’s richest city. Soon after, sponge harvesters discovered an excellent market for the goods they collected in the waters of the Florida Keys. Then, Cuban cigar makers built factories in the area. Henry Flagler, a railroad tycoon, constructed his sea-crossing railroad, and rich guests traveled to Key West for vacation.
