Home of the World's Most Expensive Wallpaper

Started in 1931 in Big Pine Key, FL as a general store, bait and tackle shop. In 1936 the store added a room and started serving food and beer. In the 40's the store added a Brothel but it soon closed because "the fisherman were better looking than the girls". In the 70's and 80's the Keys hit their prime because of Jimmy Buffet popularity.

With that came people and their money (lots of funny money flowing through the keys back then) and that money started being put on the walls, dollar bill by dollar bill. Thirty years have gone by and the results are the pictures you see below. They estimate there is over $750,000 in singles hanging on the walls and from the ceiling.
