Deering Estate: A Historic Venue & Museum in Miami

Nestled along the southwestern edge of Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserve, the Deering Estate is Miami’s premier landmark that showcases the best of South Florida’s historic architecture and natural environment. The Deering Estate encompasses over 450 acres, including eight native ecosystems including the globally endangered pine rockland habitat, tropical hardwood hammock, mangrove forests, salt marshes, Chicken Key, and submerged sea-grasses. The waters off the Deering Estate are bracketed by Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserve and Biscayne National Park. The site is located on the high ground of the Atlantic Rock Ridge, where the fresh water of the Everglades meets Biscayne Bay. This remarkable place has hosted 10,000 years of nearly continuous human occupation including Paleo-Indian shelters, Tequesta settlements, Seminole hunting grounds, Bahamian and Florida Cracker homesteads and the town of Cutler. As a 21st Century museum destination for tourists and local residents, the space functions as a private venue for weddings and other celebrations, as well as hosts a variety of signature events, arts exhibits, tours and classes are offered throughout the year, including our seasonal Miami ghost tours.
