Stiltsville, Biscayne Bay, FL
At its peak this sea-dwelling community known as Stiltsville comprised of 36 properties resting on stilts, all located at least a mile from the shore. During the days of prohibition local fisherman Eddie Walker started Stiltsville by building a shack in the Bay, soon afterwards fellow locals did the same and the village grew rapidly with the majority of the properties becoming gambling dens & clubs as they weren’t victim to laws. Hurricanes wiped out Stiltsville & few remain today. in disrepair.
