On this episode, join host Elizabeth Harryman Lasley and producer Jason Paton as they kayak to the Florida Keys’ only ghost town! Historian and author Brad Bertelli is our guide in this adventure to Indian Key, which is full of unique and mysterious history.

Why, in the 1800s, was this 11-acre island one of the most important places in the Florida Keys? Who were the Wreckers and why did they play such an important role in the history of the Keys? You’ll find out as Brad takes you around the island, to see the remains of historic Indian Key, which is today a Florida State Park.
