Grand opening ceremony for the Historic Hampton House
Friday, May 8, 2015 at 11 a.m.



(MIAMI, May 7, 2015) – On Friday, May 8, 2015, at 11 a.m., Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez, Chairman Jean Monestime, District 3 Commissioner Audrey M. Edmonson, Members of the Board of County Commissioners and the Historic Hampton House Community Trust, Inc. will host the grand opening of the Historic Hampton House located at 4240 NW 27th Ave.

The restoration of the Hampton House was managed in collaboration with the Miami-Dade Internal Services Department, Design & Construction Services Division and the Historic Hampton House Community Trust, Inc.  Designated a historic site, the two-story, 30,000 square feet, Miami modern-style structure was partially restored to its 1960’s stature.  The $6 million dollar project encompassed the replication to the old era of the symbolic historic guest rooms, lobby, café, and patio and pool areas.  A new multi-purpose room and kitchen were designed to make the building functional and flexible for future educational and museum space.

The grand opening was fifteen years in the making with planning and cooperation among residents, organizations and Miami-Dade County to restore an architectural landmark with deep roots and historic significance to the community.
