HistoryMiami Completes Cataloging Work at Wall of Hope & Memorial

On Monday, August 30,  eight archivists from HistoryMiami worked to preserve the messages and mementos at the Wall of Hope & Memorial outside of the Surfside Tennis Center.

Each section of the wall was photographed, numbered, and then carefully labeled, wrapped and boxed for transport to the museum’s storage facility for preservation.

The Town worked with the County and Museum to ensure these items were safe from any storm threats and severe weather.

There will be an area near the Tennis Center that is dedicated for family members, friends and community members to continue to honor the victims until a permanent memorial location has been determined.
