Historic Places, Green Spaces
An educational program geared to Miami-Dade County K-8 students that introduces the concepts of historic preservation, architecture, Miami history and the importance of green space in a healthy community. The program initially focuses on Lummus Park, the oldest park in the City of Miami and home to the 1855 William Wagner Homestead and the 1844 Fort Dallas Barracks. The program will be free to students and will provide complimentary transportation to those in under-served areas of Miami.
Little Havana National Treasure
This program is in partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation and various Little Havana-based for and non-profit entities with the goal of formulating a master plan for the neighborhood that embraces sustainability, resiliency, affordability, preservation of historic building inventory, displacement of residents, transportation and green space issues within Little Havana. The plan will be presented to the City of Miami and offer real solutions to address these pressing issues in Little Havana, one of Miami's oldest and most diverse urban neighborhoods.
Flagler Cottage Cafe and Bike Rental
Dade Heritage Trust is bringing together private and public institutions to restore one of Miami's oldest building - an original Henry Flagler's Florida East Coast Railroad Worker's Cottage, now located in Ft. Dallas Park on the Miami River. The project re-activates an abandoned public park to create a great civic space on the Miami River and Miami River Greenway with a cafe and bike rental components.
Urban Miami Bike Tours and Brickell Avenue Walking Tours
Dade Heritage Trust's Tour Program introduces both residents and visitors to Miami's unique, diverse and urban neighborhoods with tours focusing on archaeology, history, architecture, public art, parks, pedestrian and bike friendly streets and the importance of tree canopy.
