Casey Key – originally named Chaise Key – was one of the many places that the Seminole Indians were banished to and then made to move from years later, after government officials saw the profit in waterfront properties. Captain John Charles Casey was sent to survey the Key and remove all Seminole Indians from the area. Instead of sending the Seminole’s away, he created a very delicate trust with them that kept things at peace until Captain Casey became extremely ill. Sarasota Casey Key Barrier IslandsAfter his sickness, another Seminole War broke out and was cause for the great chief “Bowlegs” to be deported. After these wars had passed, people began to funnel into the area, living on house boats or small cabins on the water edge. In the 1920’s, the government changed the name to Treasure Island, in hopes of drumming up more business and residents, but locals fought for the name to be changed back to Casey Key. The private beach on Casey Key is a wonderful place to wander around and find a sharks tooth or perhaps some sea glass.
Casey Key is a small community with a true local feel. The island is long and narrow with just road, Casey Key Road, winding from one end to the other. There are no stop lights, and there are no large condominiums on Casey Key, nor will there ever be. This key is catered to the small amount of home owners on this beautiful island. There are still some modest homes on the island, but most of the older homes that were original to the island have been torn down and replaced by spectacular mansions with multiple levels, beautiful lanais, and prestigious views. They range from elegant to stunning, with not much wiggle room in between. These homes are some of the most spectacular architectural feats in south Florida. Because the Key is both long and skinny, most of the homes have a view of the Gulf of Mexico out the front, and a view of the bay in the back, giving you a feeling of being almost completely surrounded by water!
