General Note

  • Art McKee (1910-1980) was civil engineer who searched for sunken treasure in the Florida Keys. In 1937, he was shown by a local fisherman the wreckage off Plantation Key that turned out to be the remains of Spanish treasure ship, the Capitana, El Rubi Segundo which wrecked in 1733. For years, he and his men searched the wreckage, eventually opening McKee's Museum of Sunken Treasure on Plantation Key in 1949. It is located at Treasure Harbor, U.S.1, on Plantation Key, 5 miles south of Tavernier.
