Indians lived on this island over 1000 years ago. In 1722, it was known as Boys Island. In Dec., 1838, Lt. Coste established a Naval base here and named it Ft. Paulding. This was the base for the West Indian Squadron used to blockade the coast to keep the Indians from receiving supplies from the Bahamas or Cuba.

The Navy's first steamship, "The Sea Gull" was based here.

While the Navy was looking for Indians in the Everglades, the Indians attacked nearby Indian Key on Aug. 7, 1840 destroying the village and county seat of Dade County.
