WWII Watch Tower in Ormond By The Sea Florida

Ormond Beach and Ormond By The Sea, Florida have a few special places that may not be considered parks but are unique and are worthy of a visit.  View a street map on this website on the Ormond By The Sea map page.

Five days after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the United States entrance into World War II, fifteen local individuals along with some New Smyrna Beach residents took the qualifying exams for the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Members of the Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 44, called Flotilla 1-3 during World War II, manned the lookout tower in Ormond-By-The-Sea around the clock as they searched the coast for German submarines. This restored structure still stands today.
Flotilla 1-3 (present day Flotilla 44) was formally chartered on December 18, 1941. German submarines arrived off the Atlantic Coast in January 1942. By May of that year, 180 vessels had been sunk. The Coast Guard Auxiliary responded to aid the sinking vessels and rescued those who were forced to abandon ship. At times, people on the beach could see these U-boat engagements. In addition to their responsibilities for patrolling the beaches of Volusia and Flagler Counties, members of Flotilla 1-3 also conducted river patrols on the Intracoastal Waterway and patrolled the offshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean searching for harbor infiltrators and enemy submarines.

This rare World War II coastal watch tower was refurbished in 2004 including a placard placed at its base with a brief history. The 30 foot tower was reorganized as a historic site in the mid 1990's. The tower is on the dunes around the 2100 block of Ocean shore Boulevard in Ormond By The Sea, Florida.
