Monroe County: (305) 330-5511
Layton is a city on the island of Long Key in the Florida Keys, Monroe County, Florida. As of 2004, the population estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau is 204. In the late 19th century, Long Key was used as a coconut plantation. By 1910, Layton, Florida, was becoming famous as a fishing destination, thanks in part to promotion by sports writer Zane Grey. However, the developing tourist infrastructure on Long Key was largely destroyed by the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935. After World War II, Mary and Del Layton, who ran a grocery business in Miami, bought 40 acres (160,000 m2) on Long Key and started developing the property as “Layton’s Long Key Fishing Camp”, which grew substantially over the succeeding years. Layton FL was incorporated as a town on September 18, 1963. The land that would become Long Key State Park was acquired between 1961 and 1973. The park opened on October 1, 1969. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.2 square miles (0.52 km2) in which 12.50% is water. Islamorada FL is to the northeast. Marathon FL is to the southwest.
Labor Day Hurricane of 1935
The 1935 Labor Day Hurricane was the strongest tropical storm of the 1935 Atlantic hurricane season, and the most intense hurricane to make landfall in the United States and the Atlantic Basin in recorded history. The Labor Day Hurricane was the first of three Category 5 hurricanes that made landfall in the United States during the 20th Century (the other two being 1969’s Hurricane Camille and 1992’s Hurricane Andrew). After forming as a weak tropical storm east of the Bahamas on August 29, it slowly proceeded westward and became a hurricane on September 1. As Labor Day approached, hurricane warnings went up over the Florida Keys. A train was dispatched from Miami to evacuate the Works Progress Administration (WPA) construction workers, consisting almost entirely of Bonus Army veterans and their families, from the ramshackle camps they were living in Windley Key and Lower Matecumbe Key. The train was almost entirely swept away before reaching the camps late on September 2. When it finally arrived in Upper Metecumbe Key only the engine survived the winds and wall of water that swept through the area. The hurricane struck the Upper Keys on Labor Day, Monday, September 2. The storm continued northwest along the Florida west coast, weakening before its second landfall near Cedar Key, Florida on September 4. The compact and intense hurricane caused extreme damage in the upper Florida Keys, as a storm surge of approximately 18 to 20 feet (5.5-6 meters) swept over the low-lying islands. The hurricane’s strong winds and the surge destroyed most of the buildings in the Islamorada area, and more than 200 World War I veterans housed in work camps were killed by the storm surge and flying debris. Portions of the Key West Extension of the Florida East Coast Railway were severely damaged or destroyed. The hurricane also caused additional damage in northwest Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas. The hurricane killed more than 400 people, nearly all in the Florida Keys.
