Celebrate the Island’s Bicentennial at Key West 200

The Key West Art & Historical Society announced the opening of “Key West 200,” a major exhibition running through December 11, 2022, commemorating the 200th anniversary of the first permanent settlement of Key West in 1822.

Organized by decade, the exhibit highlights so much of what we celebrate today in Key West: the people, culture, and community – beginning with the settlers and government officials who arrived on this remote island in early 1822.
