I dug deep into the old shoebox and found a photo of the roof of 809 Eaton Street (black and white photo immediately below) that from 1914. I just love the look of Key West back in the day. You can see that the Historic Seaport is only a couple of blocks away. Note all of the smaller buildings which back then were cook houses or privies. I found another photo of 809 Eaton Street that was taken in 1965 (black and white photo second below). The house would have been about 125 years old when that pic was taken. The large building in the foreground is the backside of the Island City House. Nearly half a century later 809 Eaton Street looks as prominent as ever (color photo below).
The home has two off street parking spots - one adjacent to the front entrance and a second at the rear. The whole house generator will provide electricity to keep you comfortable and cozy in the event of power failure elsewhere on the island.
