Key West (June 4, 2008) Southernmost Point The marker, actually built to resemble a buoy, stands at the furthest south tip of Key West. The monument notes that Cuba is only 90 miles away. On the top of the monument is painted the logo of The Conch Republic. Twenty years ago, Key West, seeking to enhance its reputation as a free-wheeling, fun-loving, party without consequence kind of town, seceded from the United States, declaring itself The Conch Republic. Every April, a ten-day party celebrates the event. If that's the case, and Key West no longer considers itself to be part of the United States, then the Southernmost Point in the United States would actually be one key up, in Boca Chica. :)
