Visit the Beautiful Historic Merrick House

Step back in time to the Roaring Twenties and visit the Coral Gables Merrick House, a landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. View 14 rooms on your docent-guided tour. Stroll the 1.3-acre grounds to see the historic grotto filled with 10 species of fish, the Heritage Garden, and the lily pond. The expansive wraparound porch is set amongst the flora creating a beautiful backdrop for photographs.
