In the 1960's, Florida's Atlantic Coast was the still the target of a booming winter tourism. But newer attractions in the central part of the state drastically depleted traffic throughout the seventies, and ultimately construction of I-95 made a ghost highway of the once heavily travelled U.S.1.

Visitor's Center
Since the beginning of the Indian River Land Trust's efforts to restore McKee Jungle Gardens, an enthusiastic response has come from supporters who recall many happy hours spent at McKee with friends, neighbors, and family.
