Connecting the dots: How William F. “Rick” Crary II’s delving into history uncovered the story behind Martin County

STUART, Florida– William F. “Rick” Crary II, partner in the Crary Buchanan law firm and a resident of Martin County for more than half a century, has had a lifelong interest in history. But it wasn’t until the historic home of his Crary grandparents was moved by the city of Stuart early in 2010 that his attention was directed locally. ”Local historian Sandy Thurlow asked me to give a talk to Stuart Heritage members about the history of Crary House in the fall of 2010, prompting me to finally go through all the boxes of my grandfather’s papers,” says Crary. Crary’s late grandfather, Evans Crary, Sr., served in the Florida legislature for 18 years. He became Speaker of the House in 1945.
