Most of the homes were built in the period between 1960 to 1975, during which the subdivisions, or units, were first established. The Keys were first envisioned to be just that – key-shaped. The name comes from the old skeleton key, which features small protrusions extending from a straight base. That’s not how the area turned out, however. The modern Keys are an amalgam of islands and peninsulas with no particular symmetry at all.
The Keys were dredged and molded from the middle of the Truckee Marsh, a vast wetlands area that was fed by the Upper Truckee River and Trout Creek. Contrary to popular belief, the Keys were not filled in, in the classic sense of the term. No foreign materials were brought in – the area was simply dredged, and the extra soil was used to form the different islands.
