More About
Cedar Key, FL

About Cedar KeyDue to its location among a group of small barrier islands off the Gulf Coast of Florida, Cedar Key was a strategic point from which blockade runners exported cotton and lumber and imported food and supplies for the Confederacy during the Civil War. Following the war, lumbering and then fishing and shipbuilding formed the town's economic base. An 1896 hurricane leveled the original town.

Now sustained by tourism and the seafood industry, which includes clam farming, oystering, fishing and crabbing, Cedar Key is home to many artists. Its surrounding area is popular with bird-watchers.
