Rich man, poor man, both should be remembered. That goes for their magnificent creations as well.
December's hearing will now decide if the developer will be penalized for not following the preservation board's instructions.
In a better world Harry's house would have been preserved. The county government and the City of Palmetto Bay would not have dropped the ball. Future generations would be able to visit the Troeger Meditation Garden and marvel at how a simple man once lived.
A few miles north, the good people of Coconut Grove are fighting a similar battle. They hope to preserve this pristine residence built in the 1920's. Set on two spacious lots, the original owners could have owned the chain of theaters that Harry worked for.
Harry's house is headed for Mount Trashmore but you can help us keep this 90-year-old treasure, an example of what we love about Coconut Grove. Do we really need the two MacMansions slated to replace it? This beauty is located in the South Grove, 3529 St. Gaudens Rd.
Help preserve the historic 1920 home.
Help preserve what we love about Coconut Grove.
Come to a hearing with the Historic Preservation Board at 3pm, December 2, at Miami City Hall. We need people who care about their community. You can work for a better future by preserving our past at that important gathering.
