Over 125 years ago, Rockport, Texas was described as “one of the most beautiful and restful summer resorts to be imagined.” It still is, but more than that, it’s a great place to live…for a weekend, or a lifetime.

One of the most remarkable additions to our beautiful coastline is Key Allegro Isle, formerly Frandolig Island. This now lush canal community was once a mud flat used by fishermen and duck hunters. That all changed in 1961 when the island was purchased by Carl C. Krueger, Jr. who had a vision. He started selling lots, built a water system, beach houses, and cut canals into the island structure. Today, Key Allegro is one of the most beautiful island communities on the Texas Coast and home to people from all over the world.

In the beginning, a simple wooden bridge allowed people to the island, the sales office was on the deck of a fishing boat, and the lots were a blanket ofcountless stakes stuck in the sand. To gain the public’s interest, Mr. Krueger invested in a dolphin show…hoping the towns people would come watch the performance, buy a soda, donate to the pot for mullet purchasing and maybe…just maybe, see a lot they wanted to buy. Well, people came and watched the dolphins perform, they brought their own cold beverages, bypassed the donation barrel and went home. However, they did tell friends about this unique community, where shrimpers and artists lived side by side in a quaint little town on the Texas Coast. Eventually the sparsely populated island became a resort community with a sophisticated cosmopolitan flair.
