It's a small, solemn, and tastefully build monument that gives you a lot of food for thought about the terrible power of Mother Nature during a hurricane and how people should never try to wait out a hurricane because nature is stronger than we are.

I remembered seeing this on the way to Key West so decided to stop on the way back. I also recall hearing the story of this memorial at one of our stops in Key West. There is some great information to fully understand what happened on that Labor Day in 1935.
Many of us have no idea about the power of a hurricane, so when you find this monument take a moment and think about the power of the 1935 Labor Day hurricane that caused the deaths of 500 people. It actually took almost 50 people from one family. Much like the 7 Mile Bridge is a testament to the will... 更多
I wanted to visit here as I am a geography teacher and as such interested in extreme weather. It is such an emotional monument when you take the time to read and absorb the information that whether you have a geographical interest or otherwise you should stop!
If you appreciate history--when driving through Islamorada, be sure to stop at the Hurricane Monument. The Monument features a beautiful, grand stone carving. In addition, we all learned about the massive hurricane of Labor Day in 1935 that took so many lives. Worth your stop and time.
