The Barnacle Historic State Park

THE BARNACLE HISTORIC STATE PARK

The Barnacle Historic State Park is a house that was built in 1891, which dates back to the times when the way to and from Miami was by boat. The house is located on the shore of Biscayne Bay, and it was home to a man named Ralph Middleton Munroe, who preserved the forest on the land. A visit to this park consists of a tour around the historic property, picnics on the lawn, setting up hammocks, walking one's dog, or just relaxing on the estate and watching the boats sail by.
