Coral Gables Founder

George Merrick

Beginning in 1922, Merrick began carving out a town along the lines of the City Beautiful. He designed this new town in great detail, featuring wide, tree-lined boulevards, delicate bridges and sedate urban golf courses. Merrick’s secret was his passionate devotion to aesthetics. He wanted to focus on the finest details of this town not just on the major ideas behind the project.
