England_gingerbreadSaturday, August 16th is officially Howard S. England Day in Key West. One of our finest citizens, Mr. England (1914-1999) was passionate about historical preservation and is considered the “Father of Ft.

You can view the gingerbread tracings alongside the houses that they adorn by visiting our online gallery here.
