Located just south of Downtown Miami, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is an oasis from the hustle and bustle of modern-day Miami. Built by International Harvester Vice President James Deering between 1914 and 1922, Vizcaya is one of the United States’ most intact architectural examples from the Gilded Age. Built entirely onsite, the estate combines European inspirations in an American context, adapting architecture and landscape design to Miami’s tropical climate. The estate includes a Main House with 34 decorated rooms, containing eclectic art and furnishings acquired by Deering; 10 acres of formal European-inspired gardens with sculptures, fountains and follies; an extensive orchid collection; 25 acres of endangered hardwood hammock; and a farm village to support the estate. Vizcaya is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and is one of only a few National Historic Landmarks in South Florida.
