Perhaps the most interesting fact about the heritage of the OBC is that it has been intensely preserved over a long lineage of pirates and smugglers who settled in the area long before Florida was adopted as a state.
Residents who are born in the OBC, raised and die in OBC are now a tiny remnant of the community. Most residents were born elsewhere and many are snowbirds who live elsewhere in the summers. The surfers and poor elderly are being replaced by younger and wealthier homeowners and seasonal residents who purchase their older cottages as tear downs and replace them with modern and high style beach houses to support their "glitter" lifestyle.
