Coral Gables Merrick House
This is one of the first pictures on this blog. In ten days this blog will be on its fourth year. Many new viewers never look at the old pictures. Because of that I plan to bring back some of the old pictures. March 10 ,2007: 'This is the family home of our cities founder, George Merrick. His father had a grove of grapefruit, avocado and guava. When George Merrick was designing the city he first thought that he would call it Guavonia. Fortunately that did not happen. The name Coral Gables refers to the coral color of the gables on this house.'
