MIAMI SPRINGS and VIRGINIA GARDENS Historical Photos Gallery - All Years - click on image to view

Miami Springs was one of three Dade County cities (Hialeah and Opa-locka) developed or co-developed by famed aviator and aircraft manufacturer Glenn Hammond Curtiss. Its close proximity to Pan American Field, later Miami International Airport, made it a favorite location to live for airline employees. Since Virginia Gardens is immediately adjacent to Miami Springs and many folks grew up together and went to the same schools, I'm adding Virginia Gardens to this gallery.

The Miami Springs Historical Museum is located at 26 Westward Drive, Miami Springs, just a couple of stores from the Circle, and is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for seniors and children. Call 305-888-4849 for more information.

Thank you to the Miami Springs Historical Museum, George "Gar" Schloetzer, Martha Pierson, Raymond Mills Jr., Rose Farrell Taylor and Jim Reichert for contributing images in this gallery. In regards to the photos inside the museum, I only have copyrights on the photos that I took inside and no rights whatsoever to their photos and exhibits that retain the original copyrights if any. I apologize for any misunderstanding that the blanket copyright statement has caused to folks.
