Presented by Snow Philip
Key West is the largest historical district on the US Department of the Interior’s National Register of Historic Places. The charm of Old Town can be attributed to the eclectic mix of over 3,000 wooden buildings constructed throughout the 19-Century; some of which were built in the Caribbean Islands and brought to Key West. The durability of Key West Homes is a testament to the skills of marine carpenters who used rot-resistant Dade County Pine. In her presentation, art historian Snow Phillip will discuss the variety of styles and influences that led to Key West’s unique architectural fusion.
