Pirates, Wreckers and SalvagersThru Sun 09/08/2024
From the alleged exploits of Black Caesar, perhaps the Keys' most famous pirate, to Captain Ben Baker, the King of the Florida Wreckers who was not only a successful wrecker, but a Key Largo pineapple farmer, Pirates, Wreckers and Salvagers delves into the facts and fiction of those men who plied their trade along the dangerous Florida Reef. The exhibit also explores the efforts of men like Art McKee who braved the underwater realm to salvage the treasures lost to the sea.
The Pirates, Wrecker, and Salvagers exhibit was funded in part by a grant from the Monroe County Tourist Development Council.
