Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Yacht Harbor, Cowpens Anchorage, Plantation Key, FL
Yacht Harbor is located on the western coast of Plantation Key in Cotton Key Basin. Plantation Key was inhabited by Native Americans more then one thousand years prior to the arrival of Europeans. Artifacts from A.D. 500 to 700 were found on the island. In the middle of the 19th century, the Key began to be populated by Bahaman immigrants who farmed coconuts and pineapples that were shipped by schooner to northern ports such as New York city. The agricultural aspect of the island was ruined by the completion of the Overseas Railroad as pineapples from Cuba were now being shipped north for much cheaper prices. Plantation Key is home to an elementary/middle school and a high school.
