Big Coppitt Real Estate

    Big Coppitt is a census designated unincorporated community which includes Shark Key and Geiger Key. The name is thought to be derived from the old English word “coppice”, a word meaning thicket. According to A. D. Bache’s notes, this was the location of Happy Jack’s Plantation at one time. The island is home to several businesses and churches. There is a Monroe County Fire/Rescue station, too.
