Here’s a portion of this memorial flagpoles legacy forever etched in bronze at its base: Harry Harris was a pioneer during the days of the Keys emergence. He continued the traditions of planter and Tavernier settlers in caring for their own. He served his fellow citizens as county commissioner for 34 years.
You can find this memorial flagpole at the entrance of Harry Harris Park at Mile Marker 92.6 off on US-1 oceanside. US-1 at this point is divided into north and southbound lanes by a business-filled median. Go east on Burton Drive to its end at East Beach Road where you’ll see the park’s entrance across the street. An entrance fee of $5 is required.
