Saving the St. Gaudens Road house
The Historic Preservation Board is meeting December 2 at 3 pm, the hope is that the house will be nominated for historic designation and be saved from the wrecking ball.
Miami historian, author and preservationist Arva Moore Parks and Dade Heritage Trust's Becky Matkov are expected to speak on behalf of saving the house.
“This home clearly meets the criteria for historic designation,” says Arva, who completed much of the historic documentation. Designed by legendary architect Richard Kiehnel of Kiehnel & Elliott, it was built by one of the street’s developers Albert W. Frantz.
The petition for Historic Designation was filed on October 29, 2014. All supporters are asked to please attend the hearing at Miami City Hall (3500 Pan American Drive). Strength in numbers. For more information, please visit savethegrove.com/about.html, there's a very interesting history of the house there.
