Birth of Hurricane 1893-1904
This monument is near the spot where a celebration took place on Aug. 06, 1904. After nearly eleven years of arduous work on the canal, water was ready for diversion onto the land.
“Five or six wagon loads of people came from the little towns nearby. The crowd was solemn but happy.”
They let out a big shout as the water gushed down the hill. Names for the new city to be were discussed and voted upon.
We thank God for these pioneers of our valley.
