Casey Key

Casey Key is located in Sarasota County in Florida approximately 15 miles south of Sarasota City. This narrow, 8-mile long barrier island is secluded and in between west Gulf of Mexico and east Sarasota Bay. It was once a part of the wild place in the late 1840s Capt. John Charles Casey of the US Army was sent by the US Government to survey the area and was delegated to assist in the exclusion of the Seminole Indians from the place during the mid 1800s. Formerly called Chaise’s Key on the 1849 map, the name Casey Key was derived from Capt. Casey’s published map in 1856 but during 1920s when the real estate was a boom, the name was changed Treasure Island to draw land buyers. Today the Casey Key name remains since old residents wanted to retain the name each time an attempt was made to change the island’s name. read more…
