Unveiling

Celebrate our biking community this weekend with a Bahama Village History Tour, led by City Commissioner Clayton Lopez with Monroe County Historian Tom Hambright and Bruce Neff, whose efforts are bringing a series of historical markers to Key West.

Just meet the group Saturday, March 28th at 9 a.m. in the parking lot of the Frederick Douglas Gym on Olivia Street. From there, you’ll enjoy an entertaining 2-hour tour of historic sites throughout Bahama Village.

In addition to learning about the historic churches, the lighthouse, and even a former house of ill repute, participants will get an incentive prize: The Florida Department of Health will be passing out “Nature Play Prescription Passes.” Each pass is free admission for one vehicle with up to eight people to any state park, including Ft. Zachary Taylor and Bahia Honda.

Sites being visited will include: Bethel AME Church, Roosevelt Sands Community Health Center, the South’s very first electric plant, and more, ending at the recently unveiled statue honoring Bishop Kee at the Southernmost Point.
