The Southernmost Point Buoy is an anchored concrete buoy in Key West, Florida, marking the southernmost point in the continental United States, the lowest latitude land of contiguous North American States. It’s 18 feet above sea level. The large painted buoy was once established as a tourist attraction in 1983 by the city at the corner of South Street and Whitehead Street. Lately it is without doubt one of the most visited and photographed attractions in the US. The southernmost point was once at the beginning marked with a small sign, before the City of Key West erected the now famous concrete buoy in 1983. The concrete buoy has overall withstood several hurricanes and is a gathering place for photographs and tourists.The paint job was once damaged by Hurricane Irma in September 2017, but it was once refurbished later that year by the original artist supported by the City of Key West which values the landmark as a tourist attraction. Cuba is more or less 90 miles south of this point in Key West, even if this was once not at the beginning on the marker, but reasonably on a smaller sign next to marker. Westman Works celebrates this Florida Keys landmark with this beautiful mobile. Perfect for any patio or beach bar.
