The Coconut Grove Civic Club was founded in 1923, they procured the signs from the Florida Department of State, Division of Historical Resources, and donated them to be placed at the Coconut Grove Playhouse, Coconut Grove Library, Housekeepers Club of Coconut Grove/Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove, Pan American Seaplane Base and Terminal Building, US Coast Guard Air Station at Dinner Key, Mariah Brown House, Evangelist Street/Charles Avenue, and the E.W.F. Stirrup House. This is part of a program to promote cultural tourism, education, awareness, and to commemorate these historic sites as important elements of the City of Miami's history.
