Merrick House is 1800's architecture made with old oak and Italian gardens. It had some rennovations in 2015, now owned by Coral Gables museum. No mention of tours or events.

It's being renovated but not well advertised that it's been closed- staff at Coral Gables museum were not sure., and the Merrick web site is not very explicit !

Make a reservation and stop by this beautiful artifact of by-gone old Miama vernacular architecture. The interiors make you want to climb into a time machine and head back to a more peaceful time. Wonderfully preserved and explained by the docents, this is a must-see...More

There is no way to describe this place. You simply MUST see it. It's BREATHTAKING, to say the least. A piece of history nesseled in the most beautiful garden you can possibly imagine. You gotta see it to belive it.
