About The Community

The Clune-Stadnik building, which is almost as old as the city itself, is a fine example. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and continues to house a museum. The First Presbyterian Church on Westward Drive, which was built in 1936, also deserves special mention. It is the first Church to be built in town, and displays the Mission style with a small bell tower.

Horizontal swing and vertical lift bridges match the Pueblo Revival buildings in lending an endearingly quaint image to this dynamic growth center of Hispanic culture. The Miami Canal is not used for navigation anymore, because of which the Pony Swing Bridge and the lift bridge at Hook Square, are often not appreciated fully for the eminent engineering achievements that they really are. No praise can be too high for Glenn H. Curtis who was responsible for the establishment of Miami Springs in the 1920s, for it was his foresight and inspiring leadership that resulted in this suburb outlying the Miami International Airport becoming a kind of living museum of architecture and engineering.

Miami Springs is spread over about 3 miles of some of the best territory in all Florida. It has a population of about 14 thousand people, almost 60% of which is Hispanic. Some 40% of the residents of Miami Springs are first generation immigrants. A third of the population has college degrees, and the median household income is well above the national average for the United States. The city’s diligence in carefully preserving its past has not in any way diluted enthusiasm for the future. It is an important growth center for Florida, and uses it superior demographics for the benefit of all. It is an encouraging example of how a place dominated by ethnic minorities can rise to a median income above the national average.
