Marathon, FL

Marathon Florida MapMarathon is a city on Knight’s Key, Boot Key, Key Vaca, Fat Deer Key, Long Point Key, Crawl Key, Hog Key, Stirrup Key, Little Crawl Key, East and West Sister’s Island, Deer Key, Long Point Key, and Grassy Key islands in the Florida Keys, Monroe County, Florida. As of 2005, the population estimated by the U.S. Census Bureau is 10,626. Boot Key Harbor is a natural body of water between Boot Key and Key Vaca, entirely within the Marathon city limits. Marathon has a tropical climate. There is no record of snow/frost/freeze in Marathon. Like much of south Florida and the Florida Keys, Marathon has two seasons: a hot and wet season from May through October, and a warm and dry season from November though April. Though the area has been settled for some time, Marathon, Florida, is a relatively new city, incorporated in 1999. The city’s boundaries extend from the east end of the Seven Mile Bridge (Mile Marker 47) to the west end of Tom’s Harbor Bridge (Mile Marker 61), excluding that portion of the area within the city limits of Key Colony Beach. The name Marathon dates back to the origin of the Florida East Coast Railroad. The name came about by the railroad workers who were working night and day to complete the railway – due to the unrelenting pace and struggle to complete the project, many of the workers complained that “this [project] is getting to be a real Marathon”, and was later used to name the local station along the railroad. The late noted Keys historian Dan Gallager in his book “Florida’s Great Ocean Railway” credits New York playwright Wiiter Bynner for naming Marathon. According to Gallager, J.R. Parrott, then Florida East Coast Railway’s President and General Manager, invited Brynner to the Keys to ‘plot stations for the railroad.’ When asked to generate a name for the station at Key Vaca, Brynner proposed the name Marathon, inspired by the following passage from Byron: “The mountains look on Marathon – and Marathon looks on the sea.” Marathon FL is a major sportsfishing destination, with several charter fishing boats departing from local marinas every morning to both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Bountiful reefs around Marathon make it a popular diving, snorkeling, spearfishing, and lobster tickling area. One of the last untouched tropical hardwood hammocks in the Florida Keys is found at Crane Point Museum, just a few miles west of Florida Keys Marathon Airport. Key Colony Beach FL is to the east and south. Islamorada FL is to the northeast. Key West is to the southwest.

Labor Day Hurricane of 1935

1935 Labor Day Hurricane DamageThe 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.
