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.

This would be a great little home to tour once it is restored and preserved. As it stands, it's a wreck. I visited while the place was fenced in and painters were beginning to work on the exterior. It is a landmark and represents an...More

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 !

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.
