The municipality dates all of the way back to the year 1825, nearly a century before most of Miami's initial development wave. The famous lighthouse of Cape Florida began its life at that time. Some fifty years later, the community formally became Coconut Grove and developed more infrastructure for its new immigrants. Coconut Grove real estate development began when the first hotel was built in the area, the Bayview Inn. This activity spurred the arrival of even more immigrants into the area that were attracted to the tremendous weather and beauty of the waterfront. The neighborhood had several different boom expansions during its life. Immigrants from Great Britain, Canada, and Americans from the Northeast, in particular, saw the opportunity to forge ahead and create their new homes in paradise.
