Spring Garden Historic District Located between NW 11th Street and the Miami River from the Seybold Canal to NW 12th Avenue
Spring Garden remains today as the city’s oldest, intact single-family neighborhood along the Miami River. The most notable house in Spring Garden was inspired by Hollywood and is known as the Hindu Temple. An elaborate temple was among the temporary sets built for The Jungle Trial, believed to be the first motion picture shot in Miami. John Seybold built a permanent version of the building on the site of the original movie set after filming ended in 1919. The "humpback" bridge over the Seybold Canal at NW 7th Street is another neighborhood landmark.
