Long Description:
In 1928 the Rustic Inn was built to serve enthusiastic tourists traveling the Florida Keys on the new rail and highway systems. The Inn was one of the few structures left standing after the "Great Hurricane" of 1935. It was later repaired and renamed the Green Turtle Inn. The Inn has remained a favorite dining spot since that time.
