historical preservation

The architecturally curious have just a few more weeks to see an exhibit chronicling the life and legacy of the man credited with creating the “Palm Beach style” – the stucco, red-roofed Spanish Colonial Revival architecture now prominent along the Florida coast.

City of North Miami Beach

When it was built in the 1920s, the historical Fulford-By-The-Sea Fountain in the City of North Miami Beach was considered the largest monument in South Florida. It was recently unveiled anew after an extensive five-month restoration process. 

The 32-foot-long structure was restored thanks to $100,000 in state funding, matched by the city through donations. RLA Conservation of Art + Architecture spearheaded the restoration.

It's been more than 80 years since a train rolled along the Florida Keys. But this week, one car moved along a small piece of the island chain.

For decades, the red Pullman car has been a familiar sight at the east end of the Seven Mile Bridge.

The train car served as the visitor's center for Pigeon Key. It wasn't actually on Pigeon Key because that island, in the middle of the old Seven Mile Bridge is only accessible by boat.
