The Florida Keys

Knight's Key

Knight's Key
Knight's Key is an island in the middle Florida Keys.

U.S. Route 1 (or the Overseas Highway) crosses the key at approximately mile marker 47, at the western end of Key Vaca and eastern end of the Seven Mile Bridge.

Prior to the completion of the Key West extension of the Overseas Railroad, Knight's Key was the end of the line and a major seaport existed there. A U.S. Post Office was established there in 1908, and operated until June, 1912. A U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey field report written in 1935-36 states: "The key was named after the original settler and is called locally Knights Key."
