Random Florida Fact
Pigeon Key is a small island where hundreds of workers lived during the construction of Henry Flagler’s Overseas Railway to Key West.
Sadly, the railway was destroyed by the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 and in a last-minute attempt to evacuate Pigeon Key, the raging storm derailed their transport train sending it tumbling into the ocean.
The railway was never repaired, and a new seven-mile bridge was built several hundred meters away, effectively cutting off Pigeon Key.
Today, the historical Pigeon Key buildings have been restored and people can visit by walking or biking the Old Seven Mile Bridge.
