“Very sobering”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

The key is about four miles long and a quarter mile wide. It isn't hard to see how devastating a hurricane could be to the population, especially in 1935.

“It's OK I guess...”

Pretty plain but it is interesting to read the history of the hurricane and the lives lost. Not a destination stop IMHO.

“Okay local monument”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2011

Small monument that is worth a very brief stop if you're passing bye. Half a block in size and free. Really not something to go out of your way to see.
