The town of Perky and the Perky Lodge was the first known settlement in the early 1900’s. Some of the buildings and foundations still stand today. The Bat Tower, built in 1927 by Perky, stood for 90 years until Hurricane Irma detroyed it in 2017
Sugarloaf Lodge was built in the late 1950’s by the Reimersburg Coal Company of Pennsylvania, while dredging canals and developing the residential communities of Sugarloaf Shores and the neighboring Saddlebunch Keys. In the early 1960’s the restaurant and two story motel building were added, raised five feet higher after hurricanes Donna and Betsy flooded the Keys. The one story original motel remained until hurricane Wilma delivered the final blow in 2005.
Sugar and Dolly were resident Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins when the Good family arrived and Sugar remained a beloved family member until her death in 1997. Many grew up in the keys remembering Sugar’s daily show in her lagoon.
