School Programs

Historic Places, Green Spaces

Education is at the forefront of Dade Heritage Trust’s commitment to preserving Miami’s architectural, environmental, and cultural heritage. The Historic Places, Green Spaces education program was created to acquaint students with significant cultural, historical, and recreational spaces within urban Miami. Our standards-based curriculum offers on-site tours and interactive activities for K-8 students in the City of Miami’s Lummus Park utilizing two historic buildings–The William Wagner Homestead and the Fort Dallas barracks–as teaching tools.

It is our hope that students will feel inspired to re-visit historic sites throughout Miami and become the conduit for knowledge to be passed on to members of their community.

Review the School Programs Brochure 2017-2018 for more information about our programs and instructions on booking your school group experience.
