The Village of Coconut Grove is referred to as The Grove by locals and as home by my family and I. Cliche as it seems, Coconut Grove is truly a unique place in South Florida, with a rhythm all its own.
As the oldest, continuously inhabited neighborhood in the city of Miami, Coconut Grove is full of charm and joy, boasting Biscayne Bay and lush trees as its backdrop. It’s the ideal scenery for the countless festivals and community activities that go on here.
This village started out modestly with an influx of immigration in 1825 when the Cape Florida lighthouse went into operation and was manned by John Dubose. The Pent, Beasley and Frow families were also among the earliest settlers recorded in Coconut Grove.
