Key Biscayne, Miami History

Ponce De Leondiscovered Key Biscayne in 1513, named it Santa Marta and claimed it for the Spanish king. In 1825 the first lighthouse was built on the most southern point of the island. Seminole Indians burned it down in a dispute with the U.S. over its presence in the area, but it was rebuilt in 1856.

In 1940 the Matheson family controlled most of the land on the key. The family negotiated a deal with Dade County and donated over 800 acres of land for a park (Crandon Park) in exchange for a bridge and causeway to be built. The remaining middle part of the key was sold off to developers. In 1951 new homes were offered for $10,000 with only $500 down.

The Island was incorporated as a new municipality in 1991. New development in the form of hotels and condos were being built around the same time.
