Miami in Miami-Dade County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
The "Pagoda," the first major building, was completed in 1902. Designed by Green and Wicks, architects of Buffalo, N.Y., the large two-story building of durable Dade County pine remains unchanged except for minor interior alterations. It continues as an integral part of the campus and includes a museum in which the story of the school is on exhibit. The historical importance of the "Pagoda" won for it a place on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
