Preserving History one Brick at a Time...

bust of manTaking the lead from the many Key Westers vitally concerned with the history of our island and committed to creating a legacy to future generations, the Key West City Commission set aside a permanent park site for the Key West Historic Memorial Sculpture Garden.

Located on the original shoreline (in front of the Waterfront Playhouse and adjacent to the Key West Chamber of Commerce) in Mallory Square, the sculpture garden opened in September 1997. It features 36 magnificently cast bronze busts of the men and women who have had the greatest impact on Key West. The garden retells the story of the island to over 1,000,000 visitors a year.

Become a Part of our Island’s History.   The garden will be almost entirely financed (over $700,000) by your participation in our Walkway of History. Each brick you donate will be engraved to carry your message to future generations and each person you memorialize will have a special place in the memory of our island.

Family groups and friends will be placed side by side at your request. Ensure a perfect and lasting tribute to create a remembrance of a friend or relative forever. Become a permanent part of our island’s history and contribute to a glorious and important project. (Bricks are limited - strictly first come, first served.)

Ten, twenty, or even 100 years from now, your family, friends or descendants will visit this wonderful place and perhaps remember that you, a person from their personal history, had the foresight to make a contribution to this lasting tribute and memorial. Help the Friends of Mallory Square, Inc. (a Florida Key West not for profit corporation) to make our dream of so many years come to life by helping with this important project. Remember, you may even have your own bronze bust here some day.
