The Miami-Dade County Office of Historic Preservation celebrates the re-opening of historic log cabin in Biscayne Park

MIAMI (January 21, 2016)

The Miami-Dade County Office of Historic Preservation will celebrate the grand re-opening and re-dedication of the historic log cabin in Biscayne Park at 4 p.m., Sunday, January 24. Designated as a historic building, the log cabin was recently restored by preservation architect Richard Heisenbottle under the approval of the Miami-Dade County Historic Preservation Board. 

On the evening of January 24, 1935, a dedicatory ceremony was held when the newly built “Log Cabin” was officially turned over to the Village of Biscayne Park. This structure is a rare example of log cabin architecture in South Florida and it has a significant historical relationship to the Biscayne Park community. Since its construction, the building has served as the Village Hall and Police Station for the Town of Biscayne Park. Now exactly 81 years later to the date, the ceremony will celebrate the beautiful renovations that were done to restore this historical treasure.

The Town of Biscayne Park is a residential community located between Miami Shores and North Miami, and it is one of the municipalities that is under the County’s jurisdiction for historic preservation.
