Florida's West Coast Parks - jimsislandphotography
Cedar Key Museum State Park is dedicated to preserving the artifacts and history of this once thriving city.  In the 1800’s it was a major coastal sea port with a railroad connection to the east coast city of Fernandina Beach for lumber, seafood and other products.  Named for the abundance of Cedar trees used for the manufacturing of wooden pencils that industry left the area once the cedar forest was depleted.
