Shutts & Bowen partner and Village of Biscayne Park Mayor David J. Coviello along with the city’s council members held a ribbon cutting and rededication ceremony of a historic log cabin this past Sunday.
According to the Miami Herald, the log cabin, which also served as a police department and clerk’s office, was dedicated in 1935 for meetings and gatherings in the Village, located west of Biscayne Boulevard between Miami Shores and North Miami.
Following a $1 million grant, the log cabin was renovated and rededicated to its original purpose. Coviello and other city council members held the first commission meeting at the log cabin exactly 81 years since its initial dedication ceremony in 1935. The cabin was originally built in 1933 to provide work for people during the Great Depression.
