The advertisement was one of the first scraps of material state aroheologist Henry Baker found in Tallahassee archives during his research of Indian Key. . ' . . "One of the funny, things about that old ad, " Baker said, "was that it failed to mention the Seminol,e Indian war or the fact Indian Key was under ; daily threat of Indian attack at the time." v But the ad was invaluable, because the plat helped locate the covered foundations of the island's main .buildings when the state archeologiaal team began its excavations.
