Join HistoryMiami Museum’s Resident Historian, Dr. Paul George, as he recounts the history of Biscayne Bay.
Discover the storied past of Stiltsville, a series of colorful wooden houses built on the flats of the bay and located inside Biscayne National Park. Known in the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s as a playground for wealthy and well-connected, Stiltsville was once home to the now infamous Crawfish Eddies and Bikini Club. Learn how this once vivacious community on stilts dwindled down to the seven houses that remain today. Dr. George will narrate and share stories of nefarious gangsters, stunning graffiti, and fabulous parties while guests cruise past the Miami Marine Stadium, Cape Florida Lighthouse, Key Biscayne, and the City of Miami.
