Duval Street is the most famous and historic street in Key West. It was named after William Pope Duval, the first territorial governor of Florida, and was one of the first streets to be laid out in the city. Originally, Duval Street was a dirt road used primarily for horse-drawn carriages and wagons. In the late 1800s it was paved with brick and became a hub of commerce and activity in the city. During this time many of the iconic buildings that still stand on Duval Street today were constructed, including the Oldest House Museum, Sloppy Joe's Bar, and The Smallest Bar in Key West.
