Abstract: In 1995, members of the African American community of Key West, Florida met with city planners, the Trust for Public Lands, the Division of Historical Resources, the Overbrook Foundation, and the Institute for Community Economics in search of a way to protect the Bahama Village neighborhood from residential displacement caused by gentrification. As real estate speculators restored and sold houses in Bahama Village the rising costs made it difficult for low income black residents to remain in their ancestral homes. The Bahama Conch Community Land Trust (BCCLT) was formed as a non profit organization that could collectively own the land, preserve the historical architecture and ensure that the homes are kept in perpetual affordability. This thesis is a historical analysis of the Bahama Village community and the BCCLT based on archives and interviews.
