The Bahia Honda Rail Bridge is a beautiful foreground for a wonderful Florida Keys sunset. The bridge is an abandoned bridge that originally connected Bahia Honda Key to Old Spanish Key. It was built by Henry Flagler as part of his ambitious plan to connect all the Florida Keys by rail. Built in 1912, it was in use until 1935 when a hurricane damaged much of the rail line. The state bought the bridge and converted it to a four-lane highway. A new bridge was built in 1980 and the old Bahia Honda Bridge was abandoned for good. It now provides a scenic overlook for tourists within Bahia Honda State Park.
