Julia Tuttle Statue
The Miami-Dade Commission for Women was pleased to collaborate on the creation of the historic Julia Tuttle statue, unveiled on July 28, 2010, in downtown Miami’s Bayfront Park. Known as the “Mother of Miami,” Julia S. Tuttle is recognized as the only woman founder of a major American city. The statue is located at the southern end of Bayfront Park, next to the playground. The statue is a 10 foot bronze with scenes that are typical of Miami in 1896, the year of its founding, depicted on Julia’s skirt.
