Duck Key is located in Monroe County at mile marker 61 on US Hwy 1 between Key West and Key Largo.
Bryan Newkirk bought the island in 1956 and with a consortium of partners pumped several million dollars along with many million cubic yards of fill. Like most of the Keys, Duck Key was unnamed on early Spanish charts. It was included as one of the "Key Vaccas", or Cow Keys. It is not specifically named on the 1733 Spanish treasure recovery maps.
Today, the American society is trying to reduce salt intake; however, if necessary many acclaimed chefs still suggest the natural element of sea salt or "fleur de sel."
Ownership changed in 1983 when the Pampano Beach Barrington Group purchased the holdings and made extensive changes.
Today, fishing, sailing, diving, and just relaxing are favorite activities in beautiful Duck Key.
