GEORGE MERRICK AND THE CITY BEAUTIFUL
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11th / 10-12:30 PM
$20 PER PERSON, PLEASE REGISTER BELOW
Coral Gables, the "City Beautiful", "Your Castle in Spain", or "Florida's Master Suburb"... Whatever people chose to call it, this community is a true masterpiece, constructed in the crazy land boom days of the 20s, with uncharacteristic charm and perfection. Come ride the shady streets of the Gables, witnessing the dream of George Merrick, mother Althea, uncle Denman Fink, and a host of other artistic individuals. See where it all started at "Guavonia", better known as the charming 'Merrick House'. Continue down to splendid Venetian Pool, looking back to the days of synchronized swimming, alligator wrestling shows, orchestras, and riotous land sales. The grand Biltmore Hotel, old-world fountains, and even a few unusual 'themed
communities' are stops on the tour.
