*Old Town Key West somewhat resembles an early New England town.
There are some homes in Old Town that date back to the 1800's. In those
days, Key West citizens were very wealthy from wrecking, sponging and
cigar producing. The home builders adorned the homes with elegant
details and gingerbread - fancy swirls, designs and forms cut out of wood.
Conch house is the word we use for about 5 different style homes in the
Florida Keys but mostly in Old Town Key West. The "Classic Revival" was a
very popular architectural style in the early 1800's. This style has
well-proportioned rectangular forms with gabled roofs and columned
porches. The "Eyebrow house", unique to Key West, was designed to keep
sun and heat out of the rooms upstairs by having a roof overhang supported
by corner beams over the windows.
"Bahamian" style houses were designed to withstand hurricanes while
taking advantage of the tropical breezes on the island by having large
wrap-around porches and floor to ceiling windows. Each window has a
wooden shutter. The smallest style home in Old Town Key West are
"Shotgun" houses. They sit on raised foundations and have one long hall
that runs from the front door to the back door. "Queen Anne" is similar to
Victorian and was very popular in Key West in the 1880's. The most
distinguishing detail about this style is the pointed small tower on one side
of the house.
