History of Casey Key
Many years ago, 150 to be exact, the island was known as "Chaise's Key." The island was named after U.S. Army Captain John Charles Casey while he was assigned to remove the Seminole Indians from this area. During Casey's tenure, he assisted the U.S. government with the original coastal survey resulting in his name's placement on the map attached to the inlet south of the island (Venice Inlet). "Chaise's Key" was renamed "Treasure Island" during the 1920s Florida land boom. After the boom turned bust, the name reverted to Casey Key.
