Miami Shores Personal Injury Law Firm
Often referred to as "The Village Beautiful", Miami Shores Village was incorporated in 1932. However, its history began several decades before. The land that would ultimately become known as Miami Shores Village was settled in the 1870s by several families including the Sturtevant, Barnott, Potter, Sears, Woods, and Hunt families, and was ultimately founded by William H. Hunt and William H. Gleason. The area became known as Biscayne and, given the political ties of Gleason, it was often the county seat. During 1880s, many of the original founding families had left, however the village began to see renewed activity in 1892 when the first county road connecting Lantana and Lemon City ran was built in the city.
In the two decades that followed, the land was largely used for agricultural and industrial purposes, with citrus farms, pineapple plantations, a tomato packing plant, a starch mill, and a saw mill. By 1924, much of the land was purchased by the Shoreland Company with the intent to build Miami Shores. Shoreland Company was an experienced real estate development company that had recently completed the high-end Venetian Islands and was looking to replicate a similar community in Miami Shores. Their plans included high-end homes, many of which were on the water, with plenty of lush landscaping woven throughout the community. Also included within the city plans was commercial properties, a golf club, a yacht club, hotels, and a school, as well as the construction of a causeway to Miami Beach.
Buildings and homes were largely inspired by Italian architecture. Progress continued until 1926 when a hurricane devasted the area. This ultimately contributed to the bankruptcy of Shoreland Corporation, who sold their shares to the New Miami Shores Corporation, who continued construction in accordance with the city's plans. Residents began moving into the homes and business began to multiply, leading to the incorporation of the city in 1932. Subsequent building that occurred has largely been in line with the city's plan, creating a quaint community of beautiful and well-maintained homes, surrounding by lush trees and tropical landscaping.
Miami Shores has 10,772 residents, with a median age of 40 years old. The population is racially mixed, with over 45% of the residents identifying as white, over 36% as Hispanic, and approximately 12% as African American.
