MarathonMarathon, Florida

Marathon has a rich history that dates back to Spanish occupation. It was originally known as Key Vaca. In the early 1900s, Henry Flagler began his Overseas Railroad that would change the Florida Keys forever. Marathon was one of the main keys to have railroad stations. They built three throughout the town. The name Marathon comes from the building of the railroad. The workers kept asking why they were building so quickly. Some said things like “what is this, a marathon?” and the name eventually stuck. One of the largest fish to ever be caught in the Keys was caught by Captain Charlie Thompson in 1912. He caught a 39-foot, 30,000 lb whale shark. It took him five harpoons and 151 bullets to catch the massive fish. Of course, we know that it is frowned upon to catch such a docile creature today, but at the time it was a huge deal. Marathon is full of history and treasures, some of which you’ll have to discover yourself.
