In 1897, a monument to Waterhouse was erected in the dunes near the wreck site to commemorate his bravery. However, in July of 1972 vandals chiseled the bronze plaque from the stone that held it. The plaque was located in the palmetto scrub in the dunes in November 1972 and was safe and secure on the east side of the Casa Del Mar Motel near the shipwreck site. Since hurricane Irma in 2017, the Casa Del Mar was extensively renovated and the plaque went missing again.
