Our History

Visitors enjoy daily tours of historic homes, hikes through the lush natural areas, opportunities to examine fossils and tools left behind by pre-historic humans, and much more.  The Deering Estate is a cultural and educational facility that offers classes and programs for children and adults, as well as rental space for special social functions. The Estate is part of the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department, which manages the property on behalf of the State of Florida.
