Coral Gables Museum
The Miami Pioneers, the Natives of Dade, and the Miami Memorabilia Collectors Club historical societies meet at the Coral Gables Museum at 2pm on the first Sunday of the month.
Local historian and professor, Seth Bramson offers a presentation on some seemingly misguided characterizations of local history lore with his presentation of Debunking the Greater Miami Myths. The popular tale of Julia Tuttle sending Henry Flagler some orange blossoms — after the devastating freeze of 1895 in Central Florida — in an effort to convince him to extend the railroad to Dade County… was there some truth to it?
As usual, we start at 2pm with some club business before the presentation, along with a “find of the month” historical artifact to share. After the meeting, we break for refreshments in the community room of the Coral Gables Museum at 285 Aragon. The meeting is over before 4pm.
The meeting is free and open to the public. Kindly bring some light refreshments to share.
