Coconut Grove is best known for its quietly breathtaking natural beauty, a lush green landscape bordered by the shimmering blue waters of Biscayne Bay. From its beginnings in the late 1800’s, this magical place has attracted tycoons, artists, writers, and musicians galore, and—truth be told—more than its share of kooks, eccentrics, and free spirits.

This is a place that had a public library and a school long before Miami. In fact, Coconut Grove was an incorporated city until Miami—spotting lucrative tax revenues—annexed the little village during a summer in the 1920’s when many of its natives were out of town and evidently unaware of the vote.
