In 2022, the island of Key West will be celebrating its bicentennial. In observing this milestone, this talk will be an abbreviated history of Key West from its founding in 1822 through to the present day. A swift canter through the island’s history – approached decade by decade – demonstrates how it has taken on many different identities and functions.
