Sold Out – History in the Grove Walking Tour

January 7 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Free with Registration

Celebrate Coconut Grove’s 150th anniversary with HistoryMiami Museum and Coconut Grove Business Improvement District! Explore the history of the Grove, the land across from the light, with the museum’s Coordinator of Education Programs and Community Engagement, Ingrid E. Argueta and Resident Historian, Dr. Paul S. George. Hear accounts of some of the Grove’s early settlers, including E. W. F. Stirrup and Mariah Brown, the Beasley, Frow, and Pent families, and of Dr. Horace Porter, whose opening of a post office gave the area its name. Visit The Barnacle, Commodore Ralph Munroe’s home built during the Era of the Bay; and learn how Bahamian settlers influenced the development of the Grove with their knowledge of tropical plants and native building materials.

Sponsored by Coconut Grove Business Improvement District. In partnership with The Barnacle Historic State Park.
