Out with the old and in with the new? That is to be determined by an upcoming vote by Miami commissioners on the future of the Dade Heritage Trust site in Brickell. If you are wondering what that is, you’re not alone. Surrounded by modern skyscrapers, the Dade Heritage Trust has operated and upkeep the Dr. Jackson House since 1977. Built by Dr. Jackson in 1905, the same namesake for Jackson Memorial Hospital, the cottage was moved to its current home at 190 SE 12 Terrace, next to Solaris, in 1917 after the original site was sold to make way for the Olympia Theater. It was then later deemed historic in 1983. The Trust runs historic exhibits and walking and cycling tours. It is also heavily involved in the preservation of other historic landmarks like Miami Circle, Freedom Tower, and Miami Marine Stadium. With the city’s budget ravaged by the pandemic, selling the land valued at $1.275 million and moving the historic home yet again could be viable option for city commissioners. Only time will tell.
