If you love the water, friendly neighbors, and a laid-back atmosphere, then Islamorada may be the perfect place for you to call home. The name “Islamorada,” which means “Island Home,” was first used back in 1907. William Krome named Upper Matecumbe Key “Townsite of Islamorada.” The locals liked the name so much that they started using it as their official town name, even though it was not officially incorporated until January 1, 1998. It is now known as “Islamorada, Village of Islands.” Islamorada now consists of six total keys, four of which are inhabited. The keys are Plantation Key, Windley Key, Upper Matecumbe Key (the original community), and Lower Matecumbe Key. Indian Key and Lignum Vitae Key are both a part of the Florida State Park system, and are included in the village. There is also a private island in the community called Tea Table Key. This key contains Fort Paulding, which was used by the military during the Second Seminole War. Ted Williams, the hall of fame baseball player, lived in Islamorada for many years after he retired from baseball. He became a world famous fisherman and is one of the most well known people to live on the islands. Other notable residents include Miguel Cabrera, Gene Hackman, and Jimmy Johnson.
