Entrance to Key Marco - Horr's IslandWelcome to Key Marco – formerly known as Horr’s Island. This barrier shell island located just south of Marco Island is a significant archaeological site. Early native American Indians lived on this island more than 4000 years ago. Today Horr’s Island is called Key Marco. Key Marco is sandwiched between Barfield Bay and Bluehill Bay. The island which totals 546 acres, was once a pineapple plantation and before that was the home of Captain John Foley Horr.

Remnants of Captions Horr’s home are listed on the National List of Historic Places and the foundation can still be seen although access to the island is limited due to the gated nature of the community. Find Key Marco (Horr’s Island) southwest of Marco Island traveling towards Goodland, take a right on Whiskey Creek Drive which is a gated housing development. You have to check in at the gate and show your driver’s license to get in.
