In 1911, Lindsay Worcester of Cincinnati was in Florida to recover from illness and she took a small boat with friends out to Bird Key for a picnic. She fell in love with the natural beauty, beaches, birds and palm trees on the small island. Her husband, Thomas Worcester, purchased Bird Key from the state to build a beautiful modern home for them. Their mansion took three years and cost over $100,000 to complete. Thomas sold it to John Ringling in the early 1920's. John's sister, Ida Ringling North, moved into the mansion on Bird Key. Ringling built the Ringling Causeway from the mainland for easy access to Bird Key, St. Armands Circle and Lido Key with great plans for homes, shopping, hotels and entertainment. In 1936 John died and bequeathed the island to Ida, who lived there in the beautiful home until she died in 1950. The island was enlarged, her home was removed and the Bird Key Yacht Club today is on the site of the first home on Bird Key.
