Our Man in Miami

Henry Flagler East Coast Railway

The East Coast Railway, the railroad of Henry M. Flagler, opened Miami to the rest of the world. Before that, the land south of Palm Beach was inhospitable. Built between 1906 and 1912, the railway was called the eighth wonder of the world.

This event is funded by the Florida Humanities Florida Talks program, in partnership with the Friends of the Monroe County Public Library in Key West Florida, Inc.
