Find History and Charm in the Heart of it All.
The City of Miami Springs was founded in 1926 by aviation pioneer, inventor and land developer Glenn H. Curtiss. Located “in the heart of it all,” Miami Springs is adjacent to Miami International Airport, and offers visitors a glimpse into Miami’s peaceful side, with a wonderful small-town flavor. Miami Springs was built as one of the first planned communities in the state of Florida. Homes and buildings were built in a style of architecture called Pueblo Revival. The restored Curtiss Mansion, which belonged to founder Glenn Curtiss, is one of the city's most revered representations of this architectural style. The mansion is considered an important Miami landmark as well as event venue.
Make your way down the city’s main thoroughfare, Curtis Parkway, and you will discover more historical sights. The Fair Haven Nursing Home is another sprawling Pueblo Revival building that was formerly home to the Miami Springs Hotel Country Club. To learn about the area’s aviation history, visit the Miami Springs Historical Society museum at Circle Park. Continue along Curtis Parkway to Miami Springs Golf and Country Club, a historic 18-hole course that hosted the Miami Open for thirty years, until 1955.
