Marco History

Before Marco Island was developed, the island was in two separate land masses. There was the southernmost third of Marco, plus 50 acres of shell that had been raised by the Calusa Indians who came to the Island at an unknown time and disappeared with the arrival of the Spanish Explorers. This northern tip was “Key Marco” or “Old Marco,” which is where you’ll find the Boat House!


History Tour Museum

Marco Island’s official historical museum explores South West Florida’s Calusa Indians and brings the vanished civilization to life with informative displays and an exciting recreated village. Temporary and traveling exhibits trace the settlement of this subtropical island paradise from its early pioneer roots as a fishing village, pineapple plantation and clam cannery, through its explosive growth and development in the 1960s by the Miami-based Deltona Corporation. Free admission. 180 S.
