About Key Colony Beach, FL

Before the early 1950s, Shelter Key (on which most of Key Colony Beach is located) was a 97-acre (39-hectare) low-lying island. Then, Phil Sadowski began dredging around the island, adding to its size and increasing its height to 6 feet (1.8 m) above mean sea level, and later built developments on the island. Around 1956-1957, residents of nearby Marathon began discussing incorporating the entire area. Sadowski was not keen on having his development swallowed up into Marathon, so he began the process of incorporating the island into its own city. The Florida Legislature passed legislation in June 1957 allowing incorporation, which local residents passed unanimously in September, thus creating today's Key Colony Beach.
