Tucked away off Mallory Square is a great spot to take a few minutes to learn about history and people of Key West. It probably takes about 15 minutes or so to read the biographies so for just a little bit of time you walk away with a greater appreciation of the people and events that helped to make KW... More

There are busts of important people with information regarding their achievements in a garden, it is peaceful and has a few spots to sit down and relax. Lovely

We were there Feb 27-March 1. We were all over Ket West and stumbled on history by accident. This was really cool to discover. I'm not a history buff, but I highly recommend this place!

Nice way to learn about the history of Key West and the people who shaped it. Casually stroll around and read each person's story and it's an inclusive representation of all levels of society.

If you are a history buff, this is a nice outdoor stop. It is just off Malory Square, so if you are there for sunset and early this is a stop. We had been married in Key West 5 years earlier and had ordered a brick be carved and place in the garden. It took a while but we did... More

This cool spot is a history lesson of Key West told through the bronze statuary of significant early citizens. It is a great place to stroll around and imagine what the keys were like "before".

This is a very interesting display of the people that formed the community of Key West and tells snippets of their very interesting history. We really enjoyed reading their experiences and origins.

So much to see here and learn...So much of the history of Key West. Each sculptured bust of a man or woman whose life touched Key West has a detailed plaque explaining who the person was,and his/her history with Key West. The central sculpture is moving and also educates. A must see part of Key West!
