Hurricanes are nothing new in these islands but the hurricane that occurred in 1935 is still known as the Great Labor Day Hurricane. Hundreds died in the 20-foot wall of water that crashed over the islands. They are commemorated here at this stone monument that pictures palms bending in fierce winds. Under the tiled mosaic at the base of the monument are buried many of those who died in that ferocious storm, the worst in Florida hurricane history. There is no admission fee.
