- The Church of the Little Flower was established in 1926 by a small group of Catholics in the newly established town of Coral Gables. The new parish was named in honor of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, known as "The Little Flower" and a temporary church was built in 1928. A boarding school was established by the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1925. They had plans to expand it but the crash of the Florida land boom spurned on by two hurricanes and the Great Depression cancelled their plans. The sisters signed the deed to the the school over to the church. The school was renamed the St. Theresa School and it became a parochial school for the parish.
Father Thomas Comber, a missionary priest from Ireland, was charged with building the church. He envisioned something grand for the new church building but the lack of funds necessitated something more simple. The first church building was a parish center and auditorium that seated 800 and which was dedicated in 1928. It wasn't until 1951 that the present church got the ornate exterior that Father Comber desired. With the prosperity after WWII, Father Comber asked the Barry and Jay Company of Architects to build the church as he first envisioned it. The original 1920 plans were consulted and the church was built with stained glass windows designed by William Haley with the building in the ornate Spanish Renaissance style, to blend with the Mediterranean Revival architecture used by George Merrick when designing Coral Gables. The church was dedicated by Archbishop Joseph P. Hurley of Saint Augustine, Florida on December 8, 1952. It is still in use today. The church was renovated in 1987 and Comber Hall was renamed in honor of Rev. Msgr. Thomas P. Comber, Little Flower's first pastor. Also in 1987, a new rectory was built across the street.
Today the Church of the Little Flower is a landmark in Coral Gables. In June 2019, Fr. Manny Alvarez was named the 9th Pastor of Church of the Little Flower and Saint Theresa School. The church has been associated with two presidential candidates, Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush.Written March 28, 2021

- Try to imagine Miami and the wilderness area that it was 100 years ago as you wind your way down Old Cutler Road. Few homesteads, no traffic lights, no paved roads, no congestion. Admire the bounty of trees and let your imagination wander. Try to find as many native plants as you can and name them. Make it a true adventure!Written March 19, 2019
- Nice house, pond with fish and gardens. The museum is interesting about the founder & pioneer who developed the Coral Gables & Miami areas. Nice collections.Written April 13, 2019
- Like the Watsco Center, but I wonder why parking is not free, why do you buy tickets but end up paying for Parking. I know everyone needs to gouge the pockets of Customers but Parking should be free. You don't inconvenience the customer by picking their pockets.Written November 26, 2021
- This a small but pretty mall located in Coral Gables.
They have many benches with the shades of the trees.
I saw two different groups of people taking pictures, one looked like family pictures and the other one like sweet 16 pictures. I think is a great idea to take pictures in this nice park.Written December 10, 2019
- We accidentaly found this water tower while driving south towards Dadeland Mall. It's an unusal structure I didn't expect to find in Miami.
The water tower was built in a Moorish style, serving as a water supply for the area in 20's last century. It was a quick interesting photo stop.Written February 5, 2020
