Duck Key has a unique backstory. It was bypassed by both the railroad and the original Overseas highway back when it was first built. It was originally part of the “Cow Keys” during Spanish occupation. In 1951, the key was purchased by a financier and mining executive named Bryan W. Nerkirk for $4 million. This is the beginning of modern day Duck Key. A causeway was built in 1953 to connect the key to US1. Eventually, the island was bought by a group from Pompano Beach in 1983. They built the well-known Hawk’s Cay Resort and Marina, which is still a hotspot today. Many homes were also built in the 1990s to accommodate people that wanted to live on the island. Duck Key is now a popular vacation spot for people all over the world.
