Flagler’s Folly Society Hungry for History

Flagler’s Folly Society hosts Hungry for History at Reefers Gastropub in Islamorada (MM 81.6).  Join us for a historic happy hour followed by Keys History & Discovery Center Curator Brad Bertelli’s presentation Captain Ed and Fern Butters: A Love, Hurricane, Key Lime Pie Story. From a chance meeting in an Ohio train station to surviving the most powerful hurricane to strike North America, their love endured, as did Fern’s legendary Key lime pie. Hear the amazing story of Ed and Fern, as well as the history behind the building known today as Reefer’s Gastropub. We encourage you to stay for dinner after the presentation.
