Henry Flagler is the man responsible for building the Overseas Railroad linking Key West, then Florida's largest city, with the mainland in 1912. The railroad, almost totally destroyed by the Labor Day Hurricane of 1935, eventually became the Overseas Highway (US 1) and the Keys became the resort destination they are today.
