Enjoy a lecture by Casey Picket on this historic neighborhood. Point View in the Brickell neighborhood was an affluent subdivision located in Miami’s Gold Coast. Cultivated and platted by Locke T. Highleyman from 1912 into the early 1920s, the Point View subdivision was where the magnates of the Gilded Age chose to build their winter estates. In addition, it was the location that wealthy Miami pioneers built their homes and raised their families.
The lecture on Brickell’s Point View Subdivision will tell the story of the unique people and the ornate homes that were built in the heart of Miami’s Southside. It will include a slideshow of pictures that showcase the evolution and beauty of Miami’s forgotten residential area.
The monthly meeting of the Miami Pioneers and Natives of Dade historical society takes place at 2pm at the Coral Gables Museum, featuring a guest speaker on a topic of historical interest, followed by refreshments and social time.
