Although, as a nation, we are few in years there is an area of Miami, Florida that is rich in history, intrigue and wonderment. A buyer, looking to purchase a house on Hibiscus Island is not only purchasing a home but a slice of old Americana.
A bit of background on the quiet and demure Hibiscus Island, a man-made island, reclaimed from the Biscayne Bay back in 1922. Her sister Island, Palm Island was also resurrected at this time. The infamous Mr. Al Capone and other well known “celebrities” took up residence on the island in “the day”.
With the onset of the 1930’s and the Great Depression interest in this valuable piece of land was diminished. Time passed slowly, just like the gentle breeze a homeowner on Hibiscus Island can feel today. Fast forward several years and Miami Beach became a haven for entertainers like Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Sammy Davis Jr and another crooner named Frank Sinatra. In its the day; both islands were infamous and known for the for the Latin Quarter Nightclub.
