Homestead in Miami-Dade County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Hotel Redland
City of Homestead Historic Landmark
This building, built by W.D. Horne as the Homestead Inn, was originally constructed in 1904 and reconstructed several times after that. It served as a supply store and rooming house as well as the first post office. Following a devastating fire in 1913 it was rebuilt in 1914 as a hotel and renamed the Hotel Redland in 1934. The building reflects the early wood frame vernacular architectural style.
Erected 1997 by City of Homestead Historic Preservation Board.
