Coral Gables Merrick House
Fodor’s Expert Review
In 1976 the city of Coral Gables acquired city-founder George Merrick's boyhood home. Restored to its 1920s appearance, it contains Merrick family furnishings and artwork. The breezy veranda and coral-rock construction are details you'll see repeated on many of the grand homes along Coral Way. Note that the telephone is disconnected except during open hours and that you must contact the Historical Resources office for specific tour dates (which often fall on Wednesday and Sunday).
