  • Area was in pristine condition. A very informative monument recognizing the fate of many who lost their lives during this hurricane. We didn't have an issue with finding a parking spot, I'm sure...

  • This place is an important historical marker to the tragic 1935 Labor Day hurricane that killed over 400 (and up to 800) people. It also signaled an end the the Florida East Coast Railway extension to Key West... Which ultimately lead to the overseas highway (using the rail right of way and bridges) to Key West in 1938. I wonder how many people travel down this highway, one of the most scenic drives in the country, oblivious to its history. Take 5 or 10 minutes out of your trip to enlighten yourself, knowledge doesn't cost a dime at this monument.
  • A nice pull off to remember the victims of the deviating 1935 hurricane.
