Treasure Island History
Treasure Island got its name early in the 20th century, after several property owners attempted to boost sales of the properties being developed on the island by first burying and then pretending to discover a couple of wooden chests on the beach around 1915.
After claiming the chests were filled with treasure, the news of the discovery quickly spread and people began calling the island Treasure Island.[
