Old Town is the commonly used name for the largest historical district on the National Register of Historic Places. It is roughly the western half of the 7.4 square mile island of Key West and where the majority of the tourist attractions are located including Mallory Square, Duval Street and Fort Zachary Taylor State Park.
Old Town Key West homes are characterized by classic bungalows and guest mansions. Most of these buildings were constructed between 1886 and 1912 and are wood-frame construction. Exterior features include peaked metal roofs, horizontal wood siding, pastel paint colors, covered porches, gingerbread trim, side-hinged louvered shutters and wood lattice screen. The fact that so many of these homes are still around today is a testament to the skilled marine carpenters who built Old Town. Dade county pine, a hard, durable, rot-resistant wood, was the mainstay of early Key West construction.
