Coral Gables and the Merrick House is a great place to visit. The beauty of the city is amazing! I was so impressed that I put together a video on my Youtube channel at "thewrightsights". Learn a little about the history of this "City Beautiful"!

Merrick House is 1800's architecture made with old oak and Italian gardens. It had some rennovations in 2015, now owned by Coral Gables museum. No mention of tours or events.

This would be a great little home to tour once it is restored and preserved. As it stands, it's a wreck. I visited while the place was fenced in and painters were beginning to work on the exterior. It is a landmark and represents an...More
