The image to the left, a rare aerial photo of Terra Mar Island taken February of 1954,was forwarded to us from is from a long time resident (Scott Davis).  Notice there are no tall buildings along the ocean and only 28 homes have been completed on the island. What an adventurous time this must have been for someone to build a home here. The west side of the intracoastal waterway is pretty much empty land ready for homes. Thanks Scott for this great photo

Terra Mar Island  History

The image to the right is a current (2010) Google earth satellite photo of Terra Mar Island. As you can see it is full of homes 56 years later. I guess they were on to something back in 1954.
