About Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
Built between 1914 and 1922 as the winter home of farming manufacturer James Deering, Vizcaya is one of the most intact remaining examples from this era in the United States, when the nation’s most successful entrepreneur-built estates were inspired by the stately homes of Europe. Vizcaya features a Main House filled with a decorative art collection, 10 acres of formal gardens, a rockland hammock (native forest), mangrove shore, and a historic village that is being restored to tell Vizcaya’s full story and provide additional spaces for programs and community outreach, including those on agriculture.
Fundraising efforts support the continued preservation of this historic estate, which includes conversation efforts for architectural elements and an extensive collection of objects and archival materials as well as care of its many natural resources.
