Tift - the man who made his fortune from wrecks and built the Hemingway House. Hear the stories of brave men and daring rescues – the Key West Wreckers who risked everything to save lives and salvage cargos. Explore two floors of shipwreck artifacts – including treasure from Spanish galleons - in a re-creation of a 19th Century Wrecker’s warehouse.
