Established 1890

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1986, the Deering Estate at Cutler is a 444 acre environmental, archaeological, historical and architectural preserve owned by the State of Florida and managed by the Miami-Dade County Park and Recreation Department. In 1913, Charles Deering - a wealthy industrialist from Chicago, first Chairman of International Harvester, early environmentalist and patron of the arts - purchased the original 320 acres of the Estate to establish his winter home in South Florida. Long before the area became a bustling community in South Dade, the history of the Deering Estate at Cutler chronicled many cultures inhabiting the land over thousands of years. Archaeological records date back more than 10,000 years. Paleo-Indians, Tequestas, Seminoles, Afro-Bahamians, and others built bay side communities on these grounds until the 1700's. And, in the 1890s, one of Miami's early pioneer townships - the Town of Cutler - had been platted here. A day, even an hour, at the Estate is an experience unlike any other in South Florida. The Deering Estate at Cutler represents an island in the midst of the sea of suburbia where rustling palms, the song of birds, and the splash of the bay water take the visitor back to a simpler time.
