St. Armand's Key History
St. Armand's Key is named after the 1893 owner of the land, Frenchman Charles St. Amand. The difference in spelling is attributed to an error on the original land deeds. The land was subsequently bought by famed circus tycoon John Ringling in 1917. John Ringling's vision for the key is realized today, with its residential outer ring and commercial inner ring, as well as the landscaping and overall design.
As a testament to its founder, the area also boasts some of John Ringling's collected statues, and a "Circus Ring of Fame" commemorating famous circus figures.
