This waterfront junkyard’s history is Biblical. Old Henry the Patriarch planted his son’s family on this land. The grandsons inherited their halves, their thousands of junkers on the old Atlantic Beach town dump. City Council invited them to leave three quarters of a century ago and the occasional visit from Men in Black recurs to this day. Truth is swallowed up in the mythos. Real estate developers want this land, but the brothers will never sell.
