Coral Gables Merrick House Museum will be closed for docent-guided tours on February 16 in observance of the upcoming Presidents' Day. No pets, food, open drinks, or strollers are allowed inside the house to protect this historic House Museum. Please help us keep this century-old home in pristine condition.

Each tour lasts 50-60 minutes and includes nearly every room in the house (14 of them), downstairs and upstairs. Docents discuss Solomon Greasley and Althea Fink Merrick’s family background, their home’s furnishings and architectural details, and their son George Merrick’s dreams and endeavors. Visitors may roam the grounds, which offer a wraparound veranda, a community garden, Althea’s garden and statue, native trees and plants, a historic plaque, a coral-rock grotto, and two ponds (with lily pads and koi fish). Admission (see below) is cash only, and gifts are available for purchase inside the house before or after tours.

If a small group wishes to tour the house on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday, arrangements must be made at least two weeks in advance by phoning Coral Gables Merrick House office weekdays at 305-722-8715, or Historical Resources and Cultural Arts administrative offices weekdays at 305-460-5093, or by e-mailing requests to cworm@coralgables.com.

Volunteer docents give the tours. Before visiting Coral Gables Merrick House, please call the house phone at 305-774-0155 and listen to the recording to confirm it will be open.
