The “keys” are a chain of rocky islands, stretching some 180 miles from Biscayne Bay to the Dry Tortugas. On the north and west, they touch the shallow waters of Florida Bay; on the east and south lie the deeper waters of the Straits of Florida and the deep-blue Gulf Stream. The City of Key West is 80 miles farther south than the southernmost point in Texas, hence, Key West is known as the “Southernmost City”. Key West was the first permanent settlement in the keys, in 1822. Monroe County was formed in 1828 and included all of Florida south of Lake Okeechobee. Florida became a state in 1845.
The map is made of eight (on the 30″ x 25″) or thirteen different layers (on the 50″ x 36″) of hardwood formed together to depict the bathymetric levels of this area. Each layer is stained with a specific color according to the depths in the water. It’s assembled to represent an accurate portrayal at this scale of our Southernmost point in the U.S. This makes a wonderful gift for anyone who loves The Keys. Our amazing beaches and tropical weather draw millions of visitors every year. Amazing details and shipwrecks abound. Enjoy it year-round with our 3D map! Our maps are handcrafted for each order – we include a star or heart for your location if you would like. The typical time for production on the 13 layers is three weeks.
