Long Description:
The south side of this property contained Robert's Grocery and the second post office. Today this is the site of the sixth post office. Across the highway, the original "Village of Islamorada" meaning "Island Home" was platted and named by William J. Krome (who built the railway for Henry M. Flagler) which opened on Jan 22, 1912. All of this was destroyed by the Labor Day hurricane of Sept. 2, 1933.
