The Key’s 9-11 Memorial Flagpole

The Florida Keys 9-11 Memorial Flagpole is a sad reminder of that fateful day nearly fourteen years ago in New York City.

I’d venture to say that most Florida Keys residents don’t know about this or even where to find it. The bronze plaque at its base reads: “THIS FLAGPOLE IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF ALL THE VICTIMS OF THE ATTACKS OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2001”. This memorial was dedicated on December 22, 2001 only 3 months and 11 days after that tragic day in our nations history.

Now on to where you can find this little seen hidden memorial, it’s located at Mile Marker 28.3 near the entrance to the Little Palm Island Ferry. Going southbound on US-1 turn left onto Pirates Road where you’ll see a subdivision sign called Jolly Roger Estates with the flagpole directly behind it on the right.

While there go down to the roads end after the curve and look out into the Atlantic Ocean where you’ll see a real Dragon Boat if they’re not out practicing or off competing somewhere.
